Marcela Cunha, Correia Headline SA Champs Rosters from Brazil, Peru, and Argentina

2018 South American Championships

  • November 8th-12th, 2018
  • Trujillo, Peru

The Brazilian, Peruvian, and Argentian teams for the 2018 South American Championships have been selected, with Brazil’s distance swimmer Ana Marcela Cunha and young mid-distance freestyler Breno Correia as the headliners, according to Brazilian swimming news site Best Swimming.

We already knew that sprint star Cesar Cielo had opted out both the 2018 Pan Pacific Champions as well as this meet, as he made it clear earlier this year that he is solely focused on the 2018 Short Course World Championships in December.

The South American Swimming Championships are held every-other year. Even without usually sending their best roster, Brazil still typically tops the medals table at the even, including in 2016 where they won 18 golds and 42 total medals. Argentina was the next best with 15 golds and 36 medals.

For Brazil the roster features only swimmers that aren’t on their nation’s roster for the summer’s Pan Pacs.
