Biography

Travis Stevens (born February 28, 1986) is a judoka and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner from the United States who competed in the 2008, 2012, and 2016 Summer Olympics. He competes in the men's half-middleweight (-81 kg) division. On August 9, 2016, Stevens became the third American male judoka to win a silver medal in the Olympics.

Career

At the 2008 Summer Olympics, he lost to eventual gold medalist Ole Bischof in the third round, before losing to Tiago Camilo in the repechage.

At the 2012 Summer Olympics he again lost to 2008 gold medalist Ole Bischof, this time in the semi-finals by judges' decision. Stevens was then beaten in the bronze medal match by Canada's Antoine Valois-Fortier. Travis also holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under John Danaher and Renzo Gracie, which Danaher awarded on November 19, 2013.

At the 2016 Summer Olympics, he lost to Khasan Khalmaurzaev (Russia) in the finals, earning a silver medal.

An early start at the age of 6 enabled him to acquire a vast amount of knowledge in judo and other martial arts. Travis is an outstanding athlete in the disciplines of judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and holds many accomplishments in both. He is currently ranked number 12 in the world in the -81 kg weight class by the International Judo Federation (as of 9 August 2016). Stevens trains at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York City with several elite athletes. He also opened his own school in Boston, Massachusetts on January 12, 2013. Travis also teaches at Renzo Gracie Fort Lee in New Jersey.
