Rafaela Silva: From Rio's favela to Olympics triumph.

Hello everyone,
Do you know Rafaela Silva?





















She is a Brazilian Judoka who has fought against poverty and prejudice.
She was born in Cidade de Deus (City of God) in Rio where gang violence is common. Silva said children should believe in their dreams, after her victory last Monday.

She participated in London 2012 but she was disqualified for an illegal hold. She was called "monkey" and "Your place is in a cage" by some internet users and she thought about abandoning.
