Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The swimmer Gustavo Borges was a silver medalist in men's 100 metre freestyle. It was the first medal won by Borges, who has four Olympic medals ( a total record among all Brazilian swimmers ).

The judoka Rogério Sampaio won the gold medal in men's 65 kg category. In the final, he defeated József Csák from Hungary.

Brazil men's national volleyball team made history by conquering the first gold medal ever won by Brazilians not only in Volleyball but also in a team sport event. The team won all the eight matches of the tournament and losing only three sets. The gold medal was a surprise, given the team was young, had not achieved significant results in previous competitions and Italy was the favorite. In the gold medal match, Brazil defeated Netherlands by 3 sets to 0.[2]
