Paris 2024: Paralympian from Brazil selected for Olympic Games

Paris 2024: Paralympian from Brazil selected for Olympic Games

 


Table tennis star Bruna Alexandre becomes the first Brazilian to compete in both the Olympic and Paralympic Games after being selected for her country's Olympic team for Paris 2024.

The 29-year-old suffered a blood clot when she was just a few months old, causing her to lose her right arm, but she started playing table tennis at the age of seven.

She won two bronze medals at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games and singles silver and team bronze at Tokyo 2020.

She follows fellow table tennis players Natalya Partyka from Poland and Australian Melissa Tapper, who also participated in both Games.

Partyka first appeared in Beijing in 2008 and followed that up in London 2012 before being joined by Tapper in Rio and Tokyo.

Croatian Sandra Paovic competed in the 2008 Olympics before suffering a spinal cord injury in a car accident that limited her movement, but she returned to table tennis and won gold at the 2016 Paralympic Games.

Others who have appeared at the Olympic and Paralympic Games include South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius and swimmer Natalie du Toit.

“I am very happy for this opportunity to represent all Brazilians with disabilities at the Olympic Games and to show that I can play on an equal footing with any athlete,” said Alexandre, who uses other sports such as skateboarding and indoor football in the training to help with her balance and coordination.

“I have a dream to become a Paralympic champion, and playing against athletes without disabilities makes me stronger in my pursuit of this goal.”

The Olympic table tennis events will take place from July 27 to August 10 in Paris before the Paralympic Games start on August 28.
