Our Champion for Peace

GREGORY VALLARINO

Sport changes children in life. I believe that this is how it has been in my personal experience, as I have been able to work at an international level and sport helps you to go further.


Gregory Vallarino is a judoka from Uruguay. Ju-jitsu world champion in 2002, Gregory is aware that sport helped him to develop and guided him in his life. That’s what he wants to convey to others by joining the Champions for Peace club, as he is retired from sport.
