Brazil doesn't get a lot of gold medals, so whenever I get a chance, everybody expects me to win, and to get second is a big disappointment.
Each day in practice, I try go perfect. I try to be perfect every turn, every stroke. That's the way I feel comfortable.
The most important thing is winning, not breaking the world record.
Being favorite counts for nothing. I am focusing on doing the best time of my life, whether or not it's the best in history or the best in the competition.
In the Olympics, everything goes back to square one. The world champion or the world record holder or the ninth last year are fighting for the same medal, and you have got to go there like it was the first time.
