If the Paralympic athletes already impress us for their strong will, and determination to overcome limitations, what can we say about athletes dedicated to triathlon, which consists of swimming competitions at sea (750 m), cycling races (in hand bikes, which require hand pedaling over 20-km), and a race on wheelchairs (5 km)? This Saturday (Sept. 10), those spectators who were in Copacabana had a chance to see these super athletes in action. In exhausting competitions, they showed their strength and talent and were honored by the public in the beautiful setting of the world’s most famous beach. A recognition more than deserved, captured by photojournalist JP Engelbrecht.
