When Alabama National Guard Pfc. Elioenai Campos enters the coliseum in July, it will be the culmination of 26 years’ worth of literal blood, sweat and tears.

Campos, an infantryman assigned to the 1-167th Infantry Battalion, will represent the United States in jiu-jitsu at the 2022 World Games July 15 in Birmingham. The World Games is an international multi-discipline competition similar to (and organized in coordination with) the Olympics held every four years to recognize the best athletes in more than 30 unique sports.

“It’s incredible,” Campos said. “It feels like everything in my life and everything I have been doing has happened for this moment right now.”
