I do not have enough words to describe how much this experience moved me,Fabiana said.

It is a mixture of happiness, honour and pride. Being the first person to carry the highest symbol of the Olympic Games will be an eternal memory in my heart. I am very excited, grateful and happy to have had this opportunity. To see the people cheering, excited, some even crying, greatly moved me. I have always been moved by great emotions. It was really an unforgettable day.”
