Brazil to Kick Off First Stage of National Circuit07.08.2011
The Circuit is an opportunity to see how Brazilian athletes fare before they head to compete on the big stage in November’s Parapan Games in Guadalajara and next summer’s Paralympic Games in London.
The results from this weekend will actually count toward placement for the Parapan Games.
Brazil has shown great strides in all three aforementioned sports during the last year.
Meanwhile, Brazil’s Josilene Alves finished in fourth place at the 2010 Powerlifting World Championships in Malaysia.
