About Mingo

I am the team captain and coach of the Brazilian National Team, and I think also a legend of the sport because I have more than 30 years of experience, and won many big titles. I am very happy about my career … but I know that without the 4 surgeries it could have been even better. I lost 3-4 seasons because of this and it was very hard.
