Coach Fabio Silva leads by example for the 100 swimmers on the Coastal Aquatic Club swim team.
Practice makes perfect. Those are words Silva knows all too well from his accomplished swimming career that began at age 5.
Silva, second from left, at the Latin Cup in Portugal in 1998, when he broke the Brazilian National Record in the 200M breast stroke. Pictured with Silva are Fernando Sherer, Gustavo Borges and Pedro Monteiro (Sherer and Borges are Olympic medalists).
