"I am an example, because I've received an Athlete Grant since I was 14 years old. I participated in all stages: school games then and school Olympics today. So I see the games as very important for kids, for the base, because these school Olympics will usually lead to discovering future athletes who will represent us."

"Honestly, things have greatly improved here since 2006. And I think the trend is improving more and more. More money is coming in, we are becoming more professional. Swimming is moving up a step, being compared with volleyball, with soccer. For us, it is very good. So I hope we'll be seeing swimming as a means of earning a living. Today, it's my job. We are seeing a lot of money entering the sport, we can be professional athletes. And I hope that in 2016, we will deliver the best-ever Brazil swimming campaign."
