Matthew Pinsent has been to Rio to meet him.

He's a tough guy in a tough part of town. Roberto Custodio is a young man with hopes of making it to London 2012. He's now on track to qualify for London or if that doesn’t work out then in 4 years time when the games come here to Rio.

The arrival of the Olympics in 2016 is going to bring new stadia and a party atmosphere, but that might all happen miles that way, the real test of the Olympics is going to be whether it makes a difference in places like this.
