CareerEdit

At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing she competed at the 100 metres sprint. In her first round heat she placed fourth behind Christine Arron, Lauryn Williams and Tahesia Harrigan, normally causing elimination. However her time of 11.60 was the seventh fastest losing time, which was enough to advance to the second round. There she failed to qualify for the semi finals as her time of 11.67 was only the eighth and last time of her heat.[1] Together with Rosemar Coelho Neto, Thaissa Presti and Rosângela Santos she also took part in the 4 × 100 m relay. In their first round heat they placed third behind Belgium and Great Britain, but in front of Nigeria. Their time of 43.38 seconds was the fifth time overall out of sixteen participating nations. With this result they qualified for the final in which they sprinted to a time of 43.14 seconds and the fourth place behind Nigeria, missing out on the bronze medal with 0.10 seconds.[1] However, in 2016, the IOC stripped Russia of its Gold Medal due to doping, meaning Rosângela and her teammates inherited the bronze medal.[2]
