Pan 2012: the day Rafael Mendes was waiting for and other stories

Ever since 2009, when they first faced each other, every time Rafael Mendes and Rubens Cobrinha have stepped into the competition area together all eyes turn their way and they put on truly riveting displays.

The score between the two was already amply in favor of Mendes. Still there was something missing, and Rafael knew it.
