PHOTO VAULT: Brazilian Team Relaxed in Run-Up to 2014 Pan Pacs

Photographer Satiro Sodre is synonymous with pictures of Brazilian swimming, and while he shoots many, many other events across the country, he is most prolifically-known for his work in swimming.

He arrived early in Australia for the 2014 Pan Pac Championships, which begin in a few hours, to capture Team Brazil’s final preparations for the meet. See below some of his best images of the team and the venue, showing a very relaxed group of Brazilians.
