Fernandes represented Brazil at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where she competed for the women's 52 kg class. She received a last-minute place for the national team as a replacement for Erika Miranda, who immediately withdrew from the games because of a knee injury.[2] With a short time of training and full preparation, Fernandes, however, lost the first preliminary match against Dominican Republic's María García, who was able to score a yuko within the five-minute period.[3]
