The Paraíba, who secured a bronze at the Tokyo Games, rose to the highest place on the podium in the under-57 kg category.

Brazil‘s participation in the competition was celebrated by the Paralympic taekwondo coordinator of the Brazilian Taekwondo Confederation (CBTKd), Rodrigo Ferla: “Last month we won six medals in Paris. Now it’s eight. In other words, we increased the number of podiums. We are confident for the last appointment of the year [o Grand Prix Final, que será disputado na Arábia Saudita em dezembro]”.
