They deserve it! Part of the Brazilian Artistic Gymnastics team landed on Monday night (09) at Tom Jobim International Airport, in Rio de Janeiro. The athletes were in Antwerp, Belgium, competing in the World Championships, where they won several medals and broke records. The party to welcome the red-and-blacks was big.

Rebeca Andrade, Flavia Saraiva, Jade Barbosa, Lorrane Oliveira and Diogo Soares are medalists from the Brazilian Artistic Gymnastics Team and are from Flamengo. Thus, Mais Querido could do nothing less than welcome them with affection and took with him a group of children from the base divisions (photo below).

The 2023 Artistic Gymnastics World Cup has entered the history of the sport in Brazil. The team representing 'hopscotch' won six medals in total, in addition to securing, for the first time, a team medal among women. And he even won a silver medal!

Thus, the women's group has already qualified for the Paris Olympic Games in 2024, in addition to the men having achieved two individual quotas, which will be distributed by the CBF in the near future and we are hoping that Diogo will be one of the chosen, alongside Arthur Nory, who is practically confirmed.


Both Rebeca and Flavinha also reached the podium in individual competitions. The two were awarded silver and bronze, respectively, on floor exercise and Rebequinha achieved third place on beam, first place on vault and second place on uneven bars.

Diego Hypólito, one of the great athletes revealed by Flamengo's Olympic sports, commented on his relationship with the club in a long interview about his career. The two-time world champion gymnast and Olympic medalist began his successful career at the Gávea gymnasium and revealed that he harbors a feeling of gratitude, but still condemns the way in which he was sent away from the club.

“Flamengo is my trainer. It was there that I grew up, it gave me the opportunity, since I was a child, to have a sound system that was the best at the time. He was the one who believed my story. I was sent away by a specific person. So, I'm a laureate at Flamengo*, I vote, I help. I sometimes go to the club when I have some time”, he said in an interview with 'Abre Aspas', from ge.


Diego started training at Flamengo in 1994, as did his sister Daniele Hypólito, and He went through periods of ups and downs at the club. It was in Gávea where he became a national highlight, reached the Brazilian team and achieved international podiums. However, he was sent away between the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013.

One of the first actions of the Bandeira de Mello administration was to close several types of Olympic sports as part of the financial recovery plan. The contracts of many athletes, including Diego, were terminated. At the time, Diego gave many interviews criticizing the decision, but shows that he did not let it affect his relationship with the club.


But his departure had many serious consequences in Diego's life. At a time when he was dealing with the fact that he was beginning to admit his sexuality to himself, the athlete was sent away and began to deal with one of the most troubled scenarios of his life. He recently revealed that he was admitted to a psychiatric clinic in 2014 to treat depression, while juggling his training routine to compete in the Olympics.

“The Rio Olympics were very difficult for me, because I had a lot of psychological problems . I was denied a lot. I slept in a clinic, but I trained the other day, so I wasn't hospitalized full time, but I was taking a lot of medication to control my fears,” he said, before adding:


“I had all kinds of of claustrophobia after I left Flamengo. I was sent away from Flamengo. It was the club I coached for 20 years. The gym caught fire with equipment that had been obtained by my sponsor. I felt thrown away, it totally messed me up. And it was the time when I started to accept the issue of sexuality with myself, I started to give myself the opportunity to meet someone to date. Then I decide that I want to have a club. I stopped having the coach I had for 20 years (Renato Araújo). I closed with São Bernardo do Campo. My coach (Fernando de Carvalho Lopes) is accused of pedophilia. It was an avalanche of things, as if a tsunami had passed. And Diego in the middle of it, not knowing what to do, I was very lost, bewildered.”

* Laureate is a member who has been an individual champion for five consecutive years, competing for Flamengo; or one who has been champion for three consecutive or five alternate years, as long as Flamengo has also been champion in the sport competed in the same years by the athlete.
