Brazil at the Paralympics (30/31): Carol Santiago in double dose and cycling are the highlights | paralympics

Brazil remains among the first placed in the Paralympics medal table, largely due to two reasons: the improvement of women’s sports and the increase in the range of sports that win medals. And these two facts will be put to the test on this seventh day of competitions: Maria Carolina Santiago, leader of the world ranking of the 100m freestyle in the S12 category, seeks the title in this test, in addition to being the main name of the Brazilian relay. And Lauro Chaman tries for the medal in the time trial of the C5 road cycling, which would be the ninth sport in the country to go to the podium in Tokyo.
