Tom Hardy Wins a Gold Medal after Entering Martial Arts Championship


Tom Hardy has won a gold medal after he entered a Martial Arts championship at the UMAC Milton Keynes BJJ Open 2022.

The 45-year-old actor had privately arranged to take part in the event which was held at a local sports arena in a school in England on Saturday.

The event was open to ‘BJJ belt levels in adult, juvenile and kids divisions’.

The watching crowd was shocked when the Hollywood star stepped out to fight.

Already holding a blue belt in the sport, the Legend actor easily defeated his opponents and made it to the final stage of the championship.

The star was later pictured holding a certificate with the name ‘Edward Hardy’ – he normally uses his middle name ‘Tom’ –  as well as a gold medal. See below:

42-year-old Andy Leatherland took on the star in the final and admitted that Hardy was one of the reasons he had applied, telling Daily Mail:

‘I knew he fought in the last competition locally and won two golds, and I knew at that point that I fitted into his category – I was the same age, belt and weight as him.

‘We used to joke that if he was to fight, I would be the one to fight him, but I didn’t think anything of it.

‘I was contemplating the Milton Keynes tournament as it was very local. And then one morning – he goes by the name Edward Hardy – I saw that he’d actually signed up.’

Amazing! Well done Tom!
