Cuiabá, Brazil, November 27, 2012 - London beach volleyball silver medallist Alison Cerutti and Athens Olympic volleyball champion Anderson Rodrigues are two of 16 high profile Brazilian athletes partaking in the School Olympics, organised by the Brazilian Olympic Committee (BOC), featuring a cast of sports stars chosen as ambassadors for the event currently taking place in the city of Cuiabá, Brazil.
