The Brazilian Paralympic Committee revealed on Friday (16 September) the 335 athletes that will make up its delegation at November’s Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Among those in the delegation include visually impaired track star Terezinha Guilhermina, who won three golds at January’s International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athletics World Championships in New Zealand.

Antionio Tenorio da Silva, who has won gold in Judo at every single Paralympic Games since Atlanta 1996, will be present as well.

Both Andre Brasil and Daniel Dias, who won four golds apiece at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games, will be a threat for Brazil in the pool in Guadalajara.
