The Mexican National Paralympic Committee has announced the 19 swimmers that will represent the country at Rio 2016, three more than at London 2012.
“This is going to be my second Paralympic Games, I am meeting my objectives and believe can perform good in Rio,” said triple Parapan American champion Luis Armando Andrade.
“I will try to reach the podium in the 100m butterfly S8.”
Highlighting the team are seven Paralympic medallists: Juan Ignacio Reyes, Patricia Valle, Nely Miranda, Gustavo Sánchez, Arnulfo Castorena, Doramitzi González and Pedro Rangel.
“I feel happy and proud to represent my country at Rio 2016,” said Valle, who will compete this year at her fifth successive Paralympic Games.
“I want to climb onto the first step of the podium again. Besides, thanks to my experience I will be able to help the younger swimmers to get better prepared for the Games.”
