He worked directly with Brett Sutton for 8-years and has co-hosted professional and age group camps with Brett in Brazil.

In 2001 at the Triathlon World Championship in Canada I had opportunity to meet Brett Sutton. Almost immediately after being offered the chance I went to Coach with him in Switzerland and we decided to organise a Camp in Brazil. For 8 years we have been working together and I learned a lot from Brett Sutton. He gave me every training guideline and methodology that I needed to improve my knowledge and skills in the Olympic, World, Ironman training.

I had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Cali from my first step in triathlon since I was teenager to conquer together important results and victories around the world. There were many years of training, friendship and fellowship that I will take with me for all my life. Reinaldo Colucci

Olympic and Ironman Triathlete

I started in triathlon through social project Pequeno Cidadão. After I was being quite observed and tested by Cali, in 2009 when I was 16 years old, my life has undergone a major change. I joined the Cali high-performance team. I began to live alone and I saw that triathlon was no longer a joke. Since then I have attended hundreds of national and international events, which I was pleased to be a champion in many of them. I thank  Cali who opened the doors of the sport and the world to me.

Caio started in triathlon when he was 14. Being overweight as a youngster he started the sport to lose weight naturally. At 18 he decided to take the sport more seriously and join the professional category, competing in sprint events. A very strong and consistent rider, he jumped to long distance events, then in his first Half Ironman, he managed to have the second best bike split. With total focus he hopes to make the next year a promising one training with Cali Amaral /
