In each of the 27 capitals of the Tour, a former Brazilian national team player and world champion who is invited to show the Trophy to the public is also delivering a medal in recognition of the efforts of these local champions.
To Otávio Júnior, reading was fundamental to his trajectory. "This recognition is very important for my work. Being close to the Cup and the tri-captain, Carlos Alberto Torres, also makes me feel like a champion", he said.
In Curitiba, the Trophy Tour team met Alexandre Gonçalves, responsible for "Play Tennis", a social project that encourages kids to play more sports and have a better active lifestyle. He organizes free classes for young people. More than 100 children have passed through his project. For Alexandre, everyone is welcome. However he stablishes one condition: Every student must attend school to attend his Tennis classes.
Recently, when the Trophy Tour went through Teresina, Brazil met Samian Lima story, the first badminton school athlete of the country to receive the Brasil Olímpico prize. Sâmia received the medal from the hands of Rivaldo. Thrilled, she said: "I am pleased to receive this medal in recognition of my effort and dedication to the sport," she said.
