Fabricio Da Silva Pinto - Rio 2016

Fabricio da Silva Pinto

Sitting Volleyball

“Bricio” as he is known to his teammates, is incredibly quick and aggressive on offense and defence.

Although not the tallest player on court, his youthful energy ensures that he can be a game changer for world silver medallists Brazil.

His presence is felt each time he steps onto court and he is a player of outstanding potential.

He took up the sport in 2010 when a volleyball referee invited him to a trial at a local club.

Prior to finishing fourth at the Rio 2016 Paralympics Games, he was part of the Brazilian side that won silver at the 2014 World Championships.
