Professional Life

Nunca desista dos seus sonhos! Aquele momento em que passa a historia da sua vida na cabeça… Depois de tantas coisas que passamos, tantas criticas… nunca podemos deixar nos abater e devemos acreditar sempre em nós. Evoluí como pessoa, amadureci, errei e me arrependi. E aprendi que devemos dar nosso maximo sempre, nao só como atleta, mas como uma pessoa boa também. Às vezes de cara, outras de costas, outras de cabeça e outras de um jeito que a gente nem sabe como caiu porque se perdeu no meio salto. Na Ginástica e na Vida: nossos tombos são assim. Só o respeito constrói. Fico pensando no homem que eu desejo ser. Mas não basta saber. A gente realmente tem q demonstrar. Obrigado a TODOS que me cercaram e que me amam e que sonharam junto comigo esse sonho. Esses que realmente conhecem minha essência. Hoje acordei Olimpíco e vou dormir MEDALHISTA! Os sonhos podem se tornar realidade, basta querer! De alguém que tá em construção. #NonoEmoção #NonoDeCoração #NonoOlimpico #NonoMedalhista #BronzeComGostoDeOuro ????????????????

He came fourth in the horizontal bars, while participating in the 2015 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships and also ranked 12th all around.

Professional Career

He started his athletic career in Judo (following in his father’s footsteps) however, he transitioned into gymnastics when he was 11-years-old. The reason behind entering this field was Daiane dos Santos. She was a Brazilian female gymnast who won a gold medal on floor at the 2003 World Championships and also competed at three Olympics. She was the inspiration behind Mariano’s switch!

Relationship With Simone

Although both Biles and Mariano have uploaded photos with each other on Instagram, both of them denied the fact that they are dating. In their respective interviews they claimed to just be friends with each other. They are constantly tweeting about each other and Mariano has even taught Biles a few words in Portuguese. Needless to say, both of them support each other and cheer each other on.
