Chile’s four-time Paralympian will now devote himself entirely to Para canoe, hoping to qualify for Tokyo 2020.
The 32-year-old and Parapan American silver medallist, who reached a world’s best singles ranking of No.11 in 2006, will now devote himself entirely to Para canoe.
“But I noticed that if I wanted to give my country a Paralympic medal, it would not be possible if I continued playing wheelchair tennis.
“Now I am devoting myself to Para canoe, hoping to win that medal and achieve glory for my beautiful country.”
