RIO DE JANEIRO -- Police arrested the last suspect wanted so far in a case of Brazilian sympathizers of the Islamic State who allegedly discussed attacking the Olympic Games next month in Rio de Janeiro.The Federal Police said in a statement late Sunday that the man was caught in the city of Comodoro, in the central west region of Brazil.Authorities said he was taken to a federal prison but didnt reveal his name, citing security reasons. But family members confirmed the suspect was 32-year-old Leonid El Kadre de Melo, a mechanic from Mato Grosso state.The anti-terror case was announced Thursday when 10 Brazilians were arrested in different Brazilian states, increasing worries over security ahead of the Aug. 5-21 Summer Games. Another man turned himself in on Friday.Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes said some of the men had pledged allegiance to IS without having any personal contact with members of the terrorist group abroad. The suspects didnt meet in person and communicated with each other via messaging apps WhatsApp and Telegram, he said.The suspects are being held on two terrorism-related charges for at least 30 days.The sister of the last suspect arrested, Zeina El Kadre de Melo, told The Associated Press that to her knowledge, her brother didnt use the popular apps because his cellphone was an old model with no internet connection. Both apps can also be used on PCs, but are more commonly used as mobile apps.Melo said her brother has been falsely accused because of his Arabic name, of Lebanese origin, and his religion. He converted to Islam while he served a prison term for robbery and murder between 2002 and 2006.They are judging him because he is Muslim, with an Arabic name, and has a criminal record, she said. But this is a tremendous surprise. Theres no way that is true.Moraes said the group would have little chance to mount an attack, describing the men as amateurs and ill-prepared. The closest the group got to planning an attack was an alleged attempt via email to buy an AK-47 assault rifle in a store in Paraguay, he said. But Moraes said police were justified in acting fast in light of lone wolf attacks in the U.S. and Europe.The Brazilians discussed using weapons and guerrilla tactics to potentially launch an attack during the Olympics, authorities said, but added that the men hadnt traveled to IS strongholds in Syria or Iraq or received any training. Police said they would not comment on the religious affiliations of the men.Federal judge Marcos Josegrei da Silva, who is overseeing the investigation, told the newspaper O Globo over the weekend that there could be more people involved with the group.

RIO DE JANIERO -- Each night before she goes to bed, Marti Malloy closes her eyes and settles deeply into herself. She sees it happen.She is standing tall on a mat at the Carioca Arena after beating her last opponent. The Olympic gold medal, so tantalizingly close at the London games four years ago, is finally hers. She searches the crowd for a small, white-haired man, almost a century old. He is her mentor and confidant -- the father of U.S. judo.If I can win, it will be bigger than just being about me and what I accomplished, Malloy says, her deep green eyes growing large at the thought. Hopefully it will help give a big boost to American judo. And it will be a sign to Mr. Uchida, thanking him for standing behind me all these years.And for everything else he has done.This past weekend, Yoshihiro Uchida embarked on an interminable journey from California to the Olympic Games in Rio. His flight ran into a storm, was diverted to land and refuel, then missed its connection. No matter his age, he was not about to turn back. This probably will be his protégés last Olympics. He might live long enough to watch the 2020 games on TV, but given the difficulties of travel, he almost certainly wont be there. Mr. Uchida is 96 years old.He has toiled for years at a sport which, for all its popularity worldwide, is obscure in America. His first Olympics were the 1964 games in Tokyo, where he coached the U.S. team. From scratch, he has built San Jose State into the preeminent judo power in the United States. Without fail, he still oversees practice every day.Yoshihiro Uchida is extraordinary. His life collided with one of the most shameful moments in American history, and that experience informs his supervision of Malloy and others, including Colton Brown, another San Jose State judoka who will fight in Rio this week. He has taught me to keep going, says Malloy, who at 30 is the third seed in Rios 57 kilogram weight division, a competition set to unfold on Monday. If you have a goal, stay at it, because nothing is impossible if you go about it the right way.Its a way of looking at life that comes from what hes been through.Born in a Calexico, California, on April 1, 1920, Uchida was raised near Anaheim by parents who had immigrated from Japan. They encouraged him to learn judo as a way of connecting with his roots.In December of 1941, he was a student at San Jose State and teaching judo when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. He was drafted into the Army and was in uniform when President Franklin Roosevelt signed the executive order that sent nearly 120,000 Japanese and Japanese-Americans on the West Coast into internment camps. There I was, an American citizen, set on defending my country, while at the same time our lives at home are being torn apart, Uchida told me before he set out to Rio. Were being sent from our homes and farms to the camps. For what? Because of being Japanese. My parents, and so many of my family members ...His voice fades. Uchida is a proud man. If he sees a flaw in technique, he lectures Malloy and the other judoka in his charge, but it is not easy for him to talk about his parents, his brothers and his sister, imprisoned in Poston, Arizona, behind barbed wire.Back then, despite the pain, Uchida managed to tamp down his anger and focus on making it through World War II. Afterward, he returned to San Jose State, a campus with a permanent reminder of life upended: The gymnasium had been a processing center that sent thousands to the camps.Unwilling to let go of his dreams, Uchida earned a degree in biological science. He revived the schools judo program, and began teaching judo to police cadets. Many were war veterans, and their views had been shaped by virulent racism.The prejudice, Uchida says, shaking his head. Theyd just finished fighting the Japanese. They would say, We are not going to learn anything from a Jap instructor! Or, Hey, Jap, what are you going to teach me? Their ignorance was hard to take.Life wasnt any easier away from the judo mats. Jobs were hard to find; Uchidas time in the Army and his college degree did not lessen the stigma of being Japanese. He eventually got work in an overnight laboratory at a local hospital. In the mid-1950s, he borrowed money to buy a medical lab of his own. Over the years, he bought more, then sold them to a company called Unilab in the late 1980s for $30 million.All the while, he crusaded for judo. It was a way to teach character and discipline so students could make it through tough times. He worked incessantly to move the deeply traditional martial art, with its connection to the Samurai, into the realm of competitive sports. He led the effort to make competition fair by creating weight divisions, and he pushed to have judo sanctioned by the AAU.He helped organize the first collegiate judo championship, held in 1962 at the Air Force Academy. His San Jose State squad won it -- the first of 50 titles the school has earned. (Judo has yet to be recognized by the NCAA, so it remains a club sport on colllege campuses.dddddddddddd Uchida campaigned to make judo an Olympic event. The team he took to Tokyo in 1964 was the first Olympic squad fielded by the United States.It felt like I was the envy of many in the Japanese-American community, he says. Uchida was 44 at the time. Heres a guy whose parents were interned and everything that came with that, and now he is representing the United States as coach? And in Japan of all places. It was something many people took as a sign of progress. ? I have had quite a journey in this sport.Nearly 30 years after Tokyo, Marti Malloy began a journey of her own. She fought on judo mats at a little dojo in Oak Harbor, Washington, where she was born. Oak Harbor is a military town, a ferry ride plus an hours drive from Seattle. Her father, an aircraft technician in the Navy, was often deployed, and Malloy says her mother stuck her in judo to keep her occupied.From the very start, she possessed unusual strength. I could always just move in there and use my muscle, says Malloy, who stands 5-foot-3 and has brown hair that falls to her shoulders. But thats not judo. Judo is also about technique.She won multiple junior national titles and quickly made a name for herself. She left home at 16 and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where she lived with a family she barely knew so she could be closer to top training. She fought fierce matches against her friend Ronda Rousey, the MMA superstar who grew up in judo and won a bronze medal at the Beijing games in 2008. She worked for a while with a coach who was so merciless that she became anxious and depressed.For a brief time, she quit.That was the low point, she says. The high point was going to San Jose State, and finding Mr. Uchida.He was held in such awe that he seemed impossible to know. He was a task-master who focused on the tough, unglamorous skills of grappling. But he spoke just as much about the importance of good character and about being highly educated. He said that he wanted his judoka to contribute positively to society.What made him this way? Malloy wondered.So I tried to push past the barrier. I would ask about his day, and that opened things up to get to know him better, little by little. Eventually he became more than a coach. He became a friend. I found out things like the fact he wants us to be smart and well educated so nothing happens again like the crap that happened in the 40s. I found out there was more to what he was aiming for than just judo.When he was 92, Uchida flew to the London Olympics and watched Malloy charge into the semifinals. Then, near the end of a close match, she was caught off guard by a Romanian who drove her to the mat for a last-second victory. She still had a chance at bronze, but there were only 90 minutes to put the stunning loss behind her. She doesnt know how she did it, but says part of it was her awareness that Mr. Uchida was watching.In the consolation match, she tried a deceptive move, the Ko-Ichi. It sent Italys Giulia Quintvalles back to the mat. She was the defending Olympic champion. Malloy had her bronze -- only the second medal won by an American woman in Olympic judo.I looked up in the stands and saw Mr. Uchida smiling, Malloy recalls. I didnt want to cry because I was so happy, but my emotion ... They locked eyes, she remembers, and tears streamed down her cheeks.After London, Marti Malloy could have retired. She held not only the bronze medal, but a degree in advertising. Shed been on the deans list. She was 26, when many high-level judo players quit. Training is brutal, injuries are frequent, and the pay isnt great.But she did not stop. Going for the gold in Rio, where she has gotten a first-round draw, is a testament to her coach. I remember him saying, Why would you give up? Of course you are going to try for Rio. You have the ability to go down there and win the gold. You know, I have always believed that.Earlier this summer, the two went off to their monthly dinner at Kubota, a Japanese restaurant not far from downtown San Jose. They took me along. I listened to their easy, light-hearted banter. Yoshihiro Uchida sounded like a proud grandfather chatting with a much-favored granddaughter.They laughed about his diet: sashimi, salad and a glass of scotch. They talked about prospects for American judo. They spoke of the symbolic power of the San Jose State gym, where the judo team trains. The internment processing center is now Yoshihiro Uchida Hall.You did something so good, she said, speaking of all that he has accomplished. Not only for the United States but for the world to see. ... Perseverance.What about Rio? Uchida stopped the conversation for a moment to remind both of us that winning is vitally important, but not everything.Marti is already a champion, he said. The way she carries herself, like a leader, smart and honest, in a way that gets respect. She is a champion human being.
