This weekend has a historic podium for Brazil in rhythmic gymnastics

Brazilian sport had surprisingly good news at the Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup, which is being held in Pesaro, Italy. This Sunday (5th), the country took bronze in the two-ball and three-ribbon competition, with 28,650 points, behind only Italy (bronze in Tokyo) and Bulgaria, the current Olympic champion. The Brazilian team, formed by Bárbara Galvão, Deborah Medrado, Giovanna Oliveira Silva, Maria Eduarda Arakaki and Nicole Pircio (in addition to the reserve Beatriz Linhares) won only the second medal in the country’s history in this competition. The first was in 2013.This weekend has a historic podium for Brazil in rhythmic gymnastics

Three podiums in beach volleyball in Latvia

The stage in Jurmala (Latvia) was especially fruitful for the Brazilian duos on the beach volleyball world circuit. Although the gold did not come, there were three medals. Among the women, Bárbara Seixas and Carol Solberg were defeated in the final by the Canadians Melissa and Pavan by 2 sets to 1 (21-19, 20-22, 15-7), taking silver. The Brazilian partnership is in second place in the world ranking. The bronze in the stage was also Brazilian: Duda and Ana Patricia beat the Americans Hughes and Kolinske by 2 to 0 (21/19 and 21/17).

Among men, the world’s number 1 duo, André Stein and George, secured bronze by beating Estonians Nölvak and Tilsaar 2-1 (21/17, 18/21, 15/13).

Pepê Gonçalves is gold in Germany

The weekend did not pass without a Brazilian at the top of the podium: Pepê Gonçalves, from the canoe slalom, won gold at the Augsburg Open, in Germany, in the extreme slalom event, in which athletes compete together instead of their times separately. This event will be on the Olympic program for the first time at the Paris Games, in 2024. Pepê celebrated the result in a post on Instagram.
