MEDAL QUEST | Rivalries | Myles Porter: "Part rival, part respect" | PBS

Duration: 02:44

Judo fighter Myles Porter talks about his rival and nemesis -- and off-court friend -- Brazil's Antonio Tenorio da Silva, and about what drives him to compete. Antonio da Silva is the reigning Paralympic judo champion, the first to win gold medals at four consecutive Summer Games. Myles Porter knows how hard he'll have to work to beat da Silva in London. MEDAL QUEST offers an unprecedented look into these high-stake games and the athletes that play them, and is produced for PBS by WGBH Boston in association with the US Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee.
