I’m João de Lucca and I’m a Brazilian professional swimmer. I’ve been part of the Brazilian National Team since 2011. From 2011 to 2014 I represented University of Louisville as a D1 college swimmer, where I achieved new records and medals, but most importantly, I learned my passion for working with a team and motivating other athletes. I currently live in Louisville, KY, with my wife, Carol, and our dog, Lua. I represent Minas Tenis Club from Brazil and I’m a coach at Cardinal Aquatics. I have a brand in partnership with Zimmer-Design, I am an Adidas Ambassador and I continue to train hard for Tokyo 2020.
