Luís Carlos Coelho Winck, (born January 5, 1963) was a Brazilian football (soccer) player born in Portão, Rio Grande do Sul.

Career[edit]

Started his successful journey in soccer as a defensive midfielder in Internacional, moving to the right-back position in 1984 by late coach, Ênio Andrade. Having changed his position, Winck quickly improved his performance, winning the most important award in Brazil run by sports magazine Placar (Bola de Prata) as the best player in his position that year (he would conquer the prize again in 1987).

Luís Carlos Winck, along with midfielder Ademir Kaefer, is the only Brazilian soccer player to get two silver medals in the Olympic Games (1984 and 1988).

In 1996, he retired while playing in São José-RS. Then he became coach, for teams such as São José itself, Grêmio Coariense, São Raimundo and Sampaio Correa.[1] He is currently with River Atlético Clube.

International career[edit]

As well as his involvement at the Olympics, Luís Carlos Winck appeared for the full Brazilian national team. He was capped 19 times, from April 1985 to June 1993, but was never part of a World Cup squad. He was selected for the Copa América in 1993. He scored twice for his country, once against Mexico in 1988, and once against the USA in 1993.

Achievements[edit]

  • Los Angeles Olympic Games (1984) - Silver medal.
  • Seoul Olympic Games (1988) - Silver medal.
