General
DEPRESSION
In late 2013 he moved from Rio de Janeiro to Sao Paulo after being released by Flamengo. However, his failure to adapt caused him to have severe anxiety issues and depression. "I was afraid to get in the elevator, to fly on a plane, to get in the car, to drive. Everything left me in a big state of anxiety. I was desperate." He improved when he moved to Sao Bernardo. (esporte.uol.com.br, 12 Dec 2014)

SOUTH AMERICAN FIRST
His gold medal on floor at the 2005 World Championships meant he became the first male gymnast from any South American country to win a medal at a world championships. (intlgymnast.com, 04 Feb 2008)
