"Wales's chances were finally dashed by a stunning Snitch capture by Brazilian Seeker Tony Silva, who performed a spectacular dive in the 131st minute of the match to seize victory from under his counterpart Eurig Cadwallader's nose."
Ginny Potter, "BRAZIL VERSUS WALES" (Daily Prophet, 4 June 2014).[src]

Tony Silva was a Brazilian wizard and the Seeker for the 2014 Brazilian National Quidditch team.

On the first match of the quarter-finals, Brazil versus Wales, on 4 June, 2014, Silva performed a spectacular dive in the 131st minute and caught the Snitch from under rival Seeker Eurig Cadwallader's nose.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Given that "Tony" is a possible diminutive of the Brazilian Portuguese name "Antônio",[3] this might be Tony Silva's actual name.
