Hi Everyone !!
We had a super positive week at our Nationals José Finkel, in Florianopolis.
I swam the 50 and 100 backstroke and won 2 gold medals with meet records. I also won best swimmer of the meet !
It was my 18th participation in the Trofeu Finkel and I won my 40th gold medal in the history of this meet. It was one of the closest competition between teams and it was neat to live this excitement! Diogo also swam well with a silver medal in the 400 IM and 4th in the 200 IM.
As soon as the meet was over I headed to Brasilia (Brazil’s capital) for our Independence Day Parade. There was several Olympic Athletes from volleyball, futsal, gymnastics, track and field and us!
The crowd (30 thousand people) gave us a warm welcome and it was nice to feel the enthusiasm and excitement from the Brazilian people !
I will be back to training now because there are the world cups coming and many good things yet !!
Big hug to all,
