As athletes competing for Brazil @ocpboficial in the Paralympics, Mateus Evangelista @mateusvangelista, Veronica Hipolito @vehipolito and Yohansson Nascimento @yohanssonf are proud to blow their own horns the medals they earned at the games this week in Rio de Janeiro. The Paralympics @paralympics run parallel to the Olympic Games and supply a platform for athletes with disabilities to compete on behalf in their nation. While their performance on the track is a source of notion for anyone who watches, what evokes Yohansson is “the chance to bring medals to the Brazilian people. ” Veronica adds that “the opportunity to bounce back day after day” is what conjures up her.
