Impairment
At age nine he was involved in an accident with a train that resulted in the amputation of his left arm and his left leg below the knee. "I never really cared not to have an arm and a leg. I don't know if it was because I was too young. In fact, I always liked it. I remember waking up with my mother crying and saying, 'Son, you lost an arm and a leg.' I replied, 'Mom, I'm hungry.' That's it. It was much worse for her than it was for me." (Athlete, 02 Dec 2017; globoesporte.globo.com, 13 Sep 2016; institutoric.com.br, 28 Nov 2011)
