Congratulations to all,” stated the Panam Sports Ambassador.

About his participation in Lima 2019, the athlete expressed he was in good shape. “I’m finally ready for the Games, after several competitions and demanding trainings. I think the Brazilian team is at their best. Even though we cannot guarantee a medal, we are going to fight to get to the most finals and also give our best performance to reach the highest place in the podium,” he added.

At last, he left a message for Peruvian gymnasts: “The Peruvian gymnastics has grown. I met several Peruvian athletes in recent years and my message to them is to not stop training with dedication. To give their best, but always for the love of the sport, because when we pursue our dreams, and we believe in them, there will be results in the long run. I’m an example of that, because I was very dedicated and had a lot of respect for my technical team,” he expressed.
