  • Marti Malloy Featured in Whidbey News Times

    Our Friend and Dollamur Athlete Marti Malloy was featured in the Whidbey News Times this past weekend. Check out the article below!

    Marti Fighting Worlds.It seems even Olympic medalists have to do their own laundry.

    Oak Harbor High School graduate Marti Malloy, who won a bronze medal in judo in the 2012 London Olympics, discussed her career during a phone interview last month in between folding clothes at a San Jose laundromat.

    Malloy said her life has become a cycle of training, flying and competing, all squeezed around graduate school.

    Winning an Olympic medal brought the expected positive impact, Malloy said, but it also stirred up some negative feedback.

    “I am a lot more confident after the Olympics,” Malloy said. “I sacrifice so much time training, it is great to see all that lead up to winning.”

    However, it is “amazing what people will say to you,” she said.

    “I get messages that are critical; I’ve seen a side of people I didn’t want to see.”

    Malloy’s athletic goals are to win a world championship and an Olympic gold medal.

    After finishing second in the World Cup last year, Malloy felt this would be her year to finish at the top of the podium ---- then she saw the draw.

    We were able to snap a few photos of Olympic medalist Marti Malloy demonstrating moves at our seminar.

    San Jose Jujitsu Tournament

    SAN JOSE -- Abdullah Davis spent four minutes tugging, pulling and struggling with an opponent who was at least a head taller than him. But the smile rarely left his face, even after he lost a close decision.

    "Jiu Jitsu is just in me," said Abdullah, 13, of Fremont, who weighs 77 pounds and trims his hair into a Mohawk. "It's hard not to smile."

    His competitor, Muhammad Elmarouk, who just happened to be his good friend, agreed.

    "We all love this," said Muhammad, also 13, of El Sobrante. "It's just a fun sport."

    The emerging martial art is on display this weekend at San Jose's Independence High School as approximately 900 competitors from the Bay Area and around the country gather for the seventh annual American Cup Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament -- the largest of its kind in Northern California.
