Over my career I worked directly with Brett Sutton and using coaching methodology to help age-group triathletes and develop junior athletes through youth social projects. I was elected Sports Personality of Sao Paulo CREF. During the 8 years I had the privilege to organize camps in Brazil with Brett, we had many importants triathletes comes to our camps and show a great example to our Brazilian youth and triathlon scene. Some who came were Nicola Spirig, Emma Snowsill, Lisbeth Kristensen, Craig Walton, Andrew Johns, Bella and Stephen Bayliss, Annie Emmerson, Matt Reed, Liz Blatchford, Rebeca Preston, Hilary Biscay, Cedric Deanaz, Benjamin Sanson, Jane Fardell, Silvan Dodet and others! As the sport of triathlon and Ironman builds again in Brazil, I will build a strong age-group, junior and professional squad to showcase how strong we can be once again!

Why do you work with Trisutto?

In 2001 at the Triathlon World Championship in Canada I had opportunity to meet Brett Sutton. Almost immediately after being offered the chance I went to Coach with him in Switzerland and we decided to organise a Camp in Brazil. For 8 years we have been working together and I learned a lot from Brett Sutton. He gave me every training guideline and methodology that I needed to improve my knowledge and skills in the Olympic, World, Ironman training. He was also a big part in my inspiration to start our triathlon Social Project with 450 kids.
