High Honors for Retired Multi-World Champion Rosilete Dos Santos
by Sue TL Fox

(JAN 8)  It has been announced via the internet that retired multi-world champion Rosilete Dos Santos will have the honor of carrying the Olympic Torch in Sao Jose Dos Pinhais----the Olympic Torch is the greatest symbol of world sport.

Santos said, "Everything we've been through, all that we suffer, how many times have we had reasons to quit, but I didn't give up. It was worth it. Friends enjoy with us this moment."

In September of 2013, WBAN had announced an official retirement statement from Brazilian multi-world champion Rosilete Dos Santos, had hung up the gloves inside the ring. But at that time, she assured WBAN that she wouldl be the spokesperson for the fight for more amateur female boxers in the next Olympics.

Santos told WBAN, "I thank all the people who have helped me in my career in boxing, and who believed in me and who were with me in the most difficult moments of my life. Know, I did the best for our country of Brazil and boxing. I'm an Emeritus Champion and in 100 years or more the new will remember that Sanjaya was the first woman to win this title for the Brazil will stay forever in the memory of the FUTURE."

Fast forward to 2016, and Santos has lived up to her word and continues to be a great advocate for the sport!
