Are we going to see Sheilla Castro on the volleyball court in 2019?
There’s a possibility.
The 2 time Olympic champion recently shared a pic on her Instagram with a caption teasing her fans that she will most likely suit up again and play volleyball professionally.
Poderia postar uma foto das minhas filhas pra me despedir de 2018? Poderia, talvez deveria, pois elas são meu maior presente, meu maior sonho realizado. Mas é assim que quero começar 2019, mãe e atleta! Pq afinal não me aposentei ainda né? E 2018 foi um ano de muitas realizações pessoais e agora pra 2019 vou correr atrás de novas realizações profissionais, com as minhas meninas a tira colo!!! Hehehe! 2019, estou pronta pra vc!!! Ps: vai ter vai ter foto da minha linda família tb! Não resisti! 🤷♀️❤️❤️❤️Rola pro lado!!! Feliz ano novo meu povo!!!
She is saying that she wants to spend 2019 as a mother and as an athlete. She also made it clear that she hasn’t retired so she is definitely planning on playing AGAIN!!!
In case you didn’t know, Sheilla last played for Brazil at the 2016 Olympics. Her last match for the national team ended with a broken heart for her and for Brazil after they lost their quarterfinal to China in a 5 sets.
After the Olympics, a lot of their superstar veterans left the national team like Sheilla, Fabiana Claudino and Jaqueline Carvalho.
Sheilla was very open to her fans saying she’d take time off to focus on her personal and family life with husband Brenno Blassioli. In November 2018, she and Brenno welcomed their twin daughters, Liz and Ninna.
At 35 years old and considered as one of the best opposite hitters of the sport, no doubt she can still play.
Let’s just and see if she ends up in Brazil or overseas.
