Several members of the Brazilian press who attended the hearing and heard the entirety of de Oliveira's comments in Portuguese agreed that his statements were largely nonsensical.
If only he'd followed the gentle path of Judo, he would have felt much more comfortable flying through the air. We judoka should feel sorry for our ground-seeking brethren.
You win best joke for this news article.
