– It is a joy for me to be the godmother of Brazilian Olympic athletes. I never thought that one day I could become godmother and when the invitation arrived I didn’t think twice about accepting it. Also because I’ve been following you on social media for a long time, I’ve always watched the Olympic Games. I am very honored to be part of this team and I will be rooting for Brazil in the 2024 Olympic Games. I am 100% Team Brazil – celebrated Larissa Manoela.

– It is a pleasure for the COB to be able to count on Larissa Manoela in our godmothers and godparents program. In addition to professional success, the values that guide your life and career are the same values that we follow in Olympism.
