On Stage Continued! We Move to the Brazilians!!

For this portion of On Stage, the Brazilian Competitors, I thought I would present in some detail some interesting facts about each player!  The Brazilians have been competing since 1997, their first at Hendersonville NC.  Many of us know them quite well, however; if you are like me, it is both interesting and enjoyable to review their bios!!   Amanda will be the only female Brazilian competitor in St Petersburg.  Remember, to locate these and other On Stage personnel, enter the words On Stage into the Search Rectangle and click on Search.  Do Enjoy!!!  Stan

Amanda CaldasAmanda Caldas is a 20-year-old student of veterinary medicine, living in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro. She was introduced to shuffleboard through her father, Pedro Caldas, an understudy of Luiz Pimentel. After travelling with the Brazilian team to the World Championship in Germany in 2010, Amanda gained more interest in the game and started playing in some of the Brazilian National tournaments. Now in 2013, she will compete in her first ISA World Championship as a member of the 2013 Brazilian Delegation headed to St. Petersburg, Florida, for the 32nd ISA World Championship and proudly she will be the only woman representing Brazil. Amanda says she is both excited and scared at the same time and will do her best to not let her trainers down.
