PH’s Meggie Ochoa makes history after capturing gold in world championships

By CJ Marquez, CNN Philippines

Meggie Ochoa became the first Filipino to reign supreme on the global jiu-jitsu stage.

Ochoa bagged gold at the 2018 JuJutsu World Championship Sunday in Malmö, Sweden.

The 28-year-old athlete dominated the women’s seniors 49-kilogram division after outclassing Canada’s Ni Ni Vicky Hoang, 2-0, in the final.

It has been a productive year for Ochoa, as she nabbed gold in the Jiujitsu World Tour in London in March and bronze in the Asian Games in Indonesia in August.
