Biography

Reinaldo was born on October 29th, 1985, in Descalvado, a small town with 30 thousand habitants in the state of Sao Paulo , Brazil. His parents enrolled him in a social sports project called Projeto Criança (Kid`s Project), based in a company called Jundu S/A. Reinaldo`s father made sure his son would do something he didn`t get the opportunity to do: learn how to swim.
After a few years doing several different sports, in 1995, Reinaldo joined Projecto Crianca`s junior racing team! However, one year after he started competing, the project went through some changes, and Reinaldo followed his coach to a swimming club called “Nosso Clube.” The following three years were full of dedicated strokes in the pool, as Reinaldo always trained 4-5 times per week.
Early in 1999, NOSSO CLUBE swim club joined the rival team called CERD to become one unique team. That was when Reinaldo and Cali (who is still his coach) got the opportunity to meet each other. At that time, Cali was the race director of a local Aquathon(swim + run event) in Sao Carlos. Much to Cali and Reinaldo`s surprise, Reinaldo won this race in his first foray into multisport! After this, Reinaldo started working with Cali to dedicate himself to run training, and later to cycling, until the start at his first Triathlon in the end of May of the same year in the city of Ribeirão Preto - SP. This race was 300mts swimming, 12km cycling and 3km running.

Nascido no dia 29 de outubro de 1985 em Descalvado, cidade de aproximadamente 30 mil habitantes do interior do estado de São Paulo, Reinaldo Colucci foi inscrito por seus pais num projeto de iniciação esportiva chamado “Projeto Criança” desenvolvido nas instalações do clube da empresa Mineração Jundu S/A.
Como seu pai não sabia nadar, um dos esportes que ele fez questão de seu filho participar foi a natação!
Após alguns anos praticando várias modalidades diferentes, em 1995 Reinaldo passou a integrar a equipe de natação infantil competitiva do projeto. No entanto, um ano após começar a participar de competições, o projeto passou por uma reestruturação e o seu professor, Fernando Filla (Fernandinho), se mudou para um outro clube da cidade chamado “Nosso Clube”, sendo que para acompanhá-lo, Reinaldo então se mudou também e começou a dedicar-se apenas à natação.
Os três anos seguintes foram de muita dedicação às braçadas, sempre treinando entre 4 a 5 vezes por semana.
No início de 1999, a equipe de natação do “Nosso Clube” se uniu com a equipe adversária da cidade, do Clube Esportivo e Recreativo Descalvadense - CERD, e foi quando Reinaldo e Cali (atual técnico) se conheceram….Nesta época Cali realizava uma prova de Aquathon ( natação + corrida) no Sesc de São Carlos, e como a equipe inteira era convidada a participar, Reinaldo também quis ver como se sairia na nova modalidade, e surpreendentemente, pra ele e muito mais para o seu técnico Cali, Reinaldo venceu a prova, de forma que se aproximou mais de seu novo técnico e passou a se dedicar mais às corridas e posteriormente ao ciclismo, para então fazer seu primeiro Triathlon no final do mês de maio do mesmo ano na cidade de Ribeirão Preto interior de São Paulo nas distâncias de 300mts de natação, 12km de ciclismo e 3km de corrida.
