International career

2006–2008

Felipe Lima entered the 2006 FINA World Swimming Championships (25 m), in Shanghai, where he finished 12th in the 50-metre breaststroke[2] and 17th in the 100-metre breaststroke.[3] At the 2006 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships in Victoria, he finished 16th in the 100-metre breaststroke.[4]

Lima previously held the South American record for the 4×100-metre medley relay in an Olympic sized pool, with a time of 3:39.30, obtained in September 9, 2006 in Rio de Janeiro with Leonardo Guedes, Fernando Silva and César Cielo.[5] He also broke the South American record in the 100-metre breaststroke, in a time of 1:01.56 on September 10, 2006, at the same competition in Rio, making him the first swimmer from Mato Grosso to hold a South American record in swimming.[6] On December 16, 2006 he improved his record for the 100-metre breaststroke, doing 1:01.52.[7]

At the 2007 World Aquatics Championships he finished 24th in the 50-metre breaststroke[8] and 30th in the 100-metre breaststroke.[9] Participating in the 2007 Summer Universiade in Bangkok, Thailand, Lima won the silver medal in the 50-metre breaststroke, lowering the South American record to 27.94 seconds and becoming the first man on the continent to swim below 28 seconds in that event.[10]

At the 2007 Pan American Games, in Rio de Janeiro, Lima earned a silver medal in the 4×100-metre medley relay.[11][12] He also finished 5th in the 100-metre breaststroke.[13]

In 2008, Lima obtained an Olympic qualifying time in the Brazilian trials for the 2008 Summer Olympics in the 100-metre breaststroke, with a time of 1:01.21, but was not entered as he finished 3rd place, and only two swimmers per country can go to the Olympics. Henrique Barbosa, with 1:00.79, and Felipe França, with 1:01.17, were the swimmers selected for the Brazilian national team.[14][15]

2009–2012

Lima competed at the 2010 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships in Irvine, where he finished 8th in the 100-metre breaststroke,[16] and 10th in the 50-metre breaststroke.[17]

He competed at the 2011 World Aquatics Championships, in Shanghai, coming in 24th in the 100-metre breaststroke.[18] At the 2011 Pan American Games, he won the silver medal in the 100-metre breaststroke[19] and the gold medal in the 4×100-metre medley, for participating in the qualifying round.[20]

2012 Summer Olympics

Lima first participated in the Olympics at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, where he went to the semifinal of the 100-metre breaststroke, finishing in 13th place overall.[21]

2012–2016

In the 2012 FINA World Swimming Championships (25 m), Lima obtained his best result in a World Championship, going to three finals: the 50-metre breaststroke (finished in 6th place),[22] the 100-metre breaststroke (ranked 8th)[23] and the 4×100-metre medley (finished in 4th position).[24]

At the 2013 World Aquatics Championships in Barcelona, Lima made it to the 100-metre breaststroke final and placed fifth with a time of 59.84 seconds, breaking the 1-minute barrier for the first time.[25] In the final, he again exceeded himself, reaching his personal best time without a high-tech suit, at 59.65 seconds, winning an historic bronze medal for Brazil. It was the first time in history that a Brazilian had won a medal in the 100-metre breaststroke at the World Championships.[26][27] In the 50-metre breaststroke, he missed the World Championship final as he ran slower than in the heats, ending in 9th place.[28] In the 4×100-metre medley he finished 12th, along with Leonardo de Deus, Marcelo Chierighini and Nicholas Santos.[29]
