Rebeca Andrade BioGraphy
Her’s full name is Rebecca Rodrigues de Andrade. She was born on 8 May 1999 in the house of Rosa Santos. Her mother’s name is Rosa Santos. Rebecca has not even told her father. She is a Brazilian artistic gymnast. The birthplace of She is Guarulhos, Brazil. Representing Brazil, she participates in the Women’s artistic gymnastics game. She is raised by her mother along with her seven siblings. Her father has said that she has never told this till now. Previously she lived in a simple house in Guarulhos, a municipality in the metropolitan area of So Paulo, where she spent her childhood.
Since she was a girl Rebeca showed a lot of energy and joy in life. Her aunt worked at Ginásio Bonifácio Cardoso, in Guarulhos, and one day she decided to take the girl to spend all that energy there. Mônica Barroso dos Anjos, coach of the Guarulhos gymnastics team and international referee, saw the talent and bet on little Rebeca. She was going by bicycle to train. And she never stopped.
At age 11, Rebeca was invited to train in Curitiba with the technique Kelly Kitaura. In 2012, when she was 13 years old, Rebeca shone in her first championship as a professional. The young woman became champion of the Brazil Artistic Gymnastics Trophy, beating big names in the national sport, such as Jade Barbosa and Daniele Hypólito. Rebeca was invited by the coach of the Brazilian team, Francisco Porath to train with him at Flamengo. And she moved to Rio de Janeiro.
So many training, jumps, falls and high-level competitions put the 22-year-old gymnast’s body to the test, with a height of 1.54 meters. Rebeca shone at the Tokyo Olympics with three knee surgeries. In the first one, in 2015, she thought about stopping gymnastics. Rebeca tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee during training for the Toronto Pan American Games.
Two years later, Rebeca tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee during training at the World Cup in Montreal, Canada. The last surgery was in June 2019, after she twisted her operated knee during a race in the Brazilian Championship. The ligament has been rebuilt.
Rebeca did not get down, even knowing that the recovery time for such surgery, usually eight months, would probably take her out of the Tokyo Olympics if the games had been held in 2020.
