Marco Grael & Gabriel Borges
Brazil / 49er Class
During the Olympic cycle for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro Marco and Gabriel teamed up for the first time together in the 49er.
On their home waters the two sailed towards and 11th place during their Olympic debut.
After the 2016 summer Olympics the duo decided to split up and both go their own ways in sailing.
Both boys have been doing different projects in the sailing world but during the fall of 2018 they decided to start sailing together again towards Tokyo 2020. With this goal in mind the first big step they needed to take was to qualify the country which they did when they became 1st during the Pan American Games in Peru 2019.
