Reflecting on my loss at the Olympics Games yesterday. I hold my head high. I risked everything to get here and no one can take that away from me! My work ethic and perseverance have got me this far. We continue to move forward with the same conviction as usual that everything will work out in the end. Looking forward to the next Olympic cycle, in which I know many great things will happen! #judo #rio2016

In 3 days I will be carrying both of my flags into the Rio 2016 Olympics // Em 3 dias estarei entrando nos tatames das OlimpΓ­adas Rio 2016 com as minhas duas bandeiras πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ‡§πŸ‡· #rio2016 #olympics

Last family photo before the big departure! I'm gonna miss all of you! Our baby Camila already has her Canada gear to cheer for daddy! Another motivation to bring that medal home. Love you all! β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

Olympic training camp now done. So I'd to take 2 minutes to thank the most influential person in my entire career. My father! Who has been behind me and supporting me since day 1! Regardless of wins, losses, injury, no injury! You picked me up when I hit the bottom and showed me the path. At times when everyone had left me behind and did not believe in me, you were there to remind me of the real goal and to guide me to victory again. Though you will not be sitting on that chair in Rio, you will be with me through every second of my fights. Thanks to the best coach in Canada and perhaps one of the best in the entire world! A coach who doesn't leave anyone behind at any given situation! Osss #thankyou #father #rio2016 #comeback #motivation #judo #olympics
