“I think that with this type of initiative, we can show different perspectives and show the importance of this issue. It is an honor for me to assume the role of ambassador for integrity. I believe in an honest sport and driven by the passion for the uncertainty of what can happen in every moment when athletes give their best ”, concludes Telma Monteiro.
