Of Brazil’s seven gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics, two are based on collective performance: men’s football and sailing, in the 49er FX class, with Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze. Both arrive this Thursday (16) to the series “É Ouro – O Brilho do Brasil em Tokyo”, on Globoplay.
The two modalities are also recidivists in gold, which had already been won by soccer and sailing in the 2016 Games.
The subjects join the achievements of gymnast Rebeca Andrade, canoeist Isaquias Queiroz, surfer Ítalo Ferreira and aquatic marathon runner Ana Marcela Cunha.
In the conquest of sailing, Martine and Kahena talk about the partnership that began to be built in their adolescence. The duo lived previous achievements to Tokyo, but also went through a separation on the eve of the London Games, in 2012. The following year, the pair’s resumption changed the fate of the two. The 49er FX class has forever united this relationship.
“We are two different people who like the same thing,” sums up Martine. “Our friendship goes much further. It’s a partnership for life,” says Kahena Kunze. The episode, directed by Rafael Pirrho and Marco Antonio Araujo, shows the upheaval of Brazilian women in Tokyo.
After facing a troubled start, they recovered throughout the races until they reached the last one with the chance to dispute the gold. The third place in the final test yielded the Olympic bi-championship.
In football, the episode crosses the entire men’s team campaign in Japan. Daniel Alves, Richarlison, Matheus Cunha, Nino, Malcom, Paulinho, Claudinho and coach André Jardine are some of the champions who spoke exclusively about the backstage of this trajectory. The episode is directed by Rafael Pirrho and Eric Faria, with a screenplay by Carol Oliveira.
In this way, Globo takes advantage of much of the material that cannot be absorbed by linear TV programming during the Olympics, when various competitions compete for space in the linear grid, with preference for real-time disputes.
