A Look At The Events Team Brazil Is Swimming At Pan Pacific Championships

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, August 13. THOUGH the Brazilian swimming federation announced the team of 19 swimmers attending the Pan Pacific championships in early June, the list of events each swimmer has entered was not publicly known … until today.

This morning on the federation’s website, each swimmer traveling to the Gold Coast was listed with the events they’ll swim. As mentioned in June, Cesar Cielo is not attending the meet as he is putting a focus on the short course world championships. Felipe Silva won the 50 breast in 2010, but this year’s meet does not feature 50s of the strokes, so he’ll be looking to gain gold in the longer distances.

Below is the list of athletes and the events they’re scheduled to swim in the meet, which starts August 21.

Men
Tales Cerdeira – 100 and 200 breaststroke
Marcelo Chierighini – 50 and 10m freestyle
Leonardo de Deus – 200 backstroke, 200 butterfly, 400 freestyle
Joao de Lucca – 100 and 200 freestyle
Bruno Fratus – 50 freestyle

Nicholas Santos – 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly

Thiago Simon – 200 breaststroke, 200 and 400 individual medley

    We met these guys at Melbourne Airport on Tuesday 12th August. The one we actually spoke to for some time told us they were on the way to the Gold Coast for the Pan Pacs. Lovely guys! Good Luck!!
    Would love to see a team photo on the website.
