  • The last three Instagram photos below are of Brazil's @santitri0, @tvinhal and @chicaotri. All of them still young have grown up dreaming of capturing the IRONMAN Brazil title. During their junior days, @tvinhal and @chicaotri were spotters for the IronmanLive coverage in Ironman Florianópolis, Brazil.
  • Below is Brazil’s Igor Amorelli. He is another Brazilian who grew up eyeing Ironman Brazil. A dream came to fruition for Amorelli last year when he won Ironman Florianópolis, Brazil. Amorelli has an early 2015 season win recorded at Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico to his credit.
