Gusmao Gives Up Spot for Delaroli to Complete Brazil World Championships Roster

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, December 26. LAST week, Rebeca Gusmao elected to withdraw her name from consideration for the 2007 World Championships Team for Brazil when earlier reports had Gusmao and Flavia Delaroli in a dead heat for the final roster spot.

Gusmao recently returned to competitive swimming after taking some time off and decided that her best shot at qualifying for the Olympics would be in May at the Pan-American Games.

Overall, Brazil will send 18 swimmers, 15 men and three women.
