Pinto back in Brazil's final roster for Rio Olympics
In a group mixing veterans and newcomers together, eight of the 12 players have played at the Olympics at least once in their careers.
Brazil 12-player final roster for Rio 2016 Olympic Games
|Iziane Castro||Nadia Colhado||Damiris Dantas||Taina Da Paixao|
|Erika De Souza||Clarissa Dos Santos||Palmira Marcal||Tatiane Pacheco|
|Adriana Pinto||Isabella Ramona||Joice Rodrigues||Kelly Santos|
Pinto had announced her retirement from the national team right after the 2014 FIBA World Championship for Women but when Barbosa called, the 1.70m point guard didn't hesitate to accept the chance of representing her country in Rio.
Both Pinto and Kelly Santos were members of the Barbosa-coached Brazil team that last claimed an Olympic medal, at the Sydney 2000 Olympics where they finished third.
