article imageOlympic gold medalist Mark Schultz earns Jiu-Jitsu black belt Special

By Markos Papadatos     Mar 9, 2016 in Sports
Olympic gold medalist Mark Schultz should not be messed with. He has just earned his black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, and chatted with Digital Journal about this achievement.
He received his black belt from 8th degree black belt Pedro Sauer. "It felt great," Schultz said. "It was a long time coming. I worked really hard for it. It was the culmination of a lot of hard work, time and energy. It was a great feeling to finally get it."
This is quite the impressive milestone for Schultz since it has been a long time coming.
His plans for the future include giving a speaking engagement in Wisconsin, as well as participating in a banquet, prior to heading over to New Jersey.
Schultz' New Year's resolution for 2016 is to switch over to a "plant-based diet," especially since he has heard a lot of favorable things about it.
His sports biography, Foxcatcher, continues to be a commercial success. "It's selling really good," he said. "It just translated into Mandarin, and I just came back from giving the keynote speech at the World Agricultural Expo last week."
