Gracyanne Barbosa - Brazilian Fitness Model

This is Brazilian samba dancer and fitness model, Gracyanne Barbosa.
Further evidence that there is something in the water in Brazil!
I have seriously thought about starting a blog just for Brazilian fitness models.
Really.

Gracyanne was born Gracyanne Jacobina Barbosa Vieira on September 20th, 1983 in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.
She has been "Rainha de Bateria" (Queen of Drums) at the Rio Carnival and São Paulo Carnival many times.

She rose to fame in 2012 when pictures of Gracyanne squatting 450 pounds were uploaded to the internet.
Some people were wowed and some people cried fake as it is with anything put on the internet these days.

Can Gracyanne really squat 450 lbs?
Well with glutes and quads like that, you have to wonder.
The woman is built as well as any IFBB Figure Pro.
So who knows?
