“I remember that for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games we only had six athletes and that shows that we have grown considerably in sports,” said athlete Juan Luis Casas to Telesur.
Peru’s athletes will be competing in 16 sports, such as seated volleyball and basketball, track, badminton, soccer and others.
“For his part, the president of the Lima 2019 Organizing Committee, Carlos Neuhaus, hoped that, as in the Pan American Games, this will be the most auspicious participation of Peruvian athletes”, you can read in the aforementioned media.
This sporting event will begin on August 23 with an opening ceremony at the National Stadium and it will end on September 1.
