Jady Malavazzi won the bronze medal in the road race at the Canadian Paracycling World Cup, held this Saturday (6) in Quebec City, Canada. The paranaense finished the race with 1h49min41s, behind the Italian Francesca Porcellato (1h48min21s) and the German Annika Zeyen (1h48min16s).
Jady Malavazzi lost movement in his legs at the age of 13 after a car accident. Soon after his recovery, he started playing basketball. She migrated to paracycling in 2011 and since then has been one of the Brazilian highlights in handbike.
In this stage of the Paracycling World Cup, Jady Malavazzi won two bronze medals. On Thursday (4), the first day of disputes, she finished the time trial in third place. Brazil already has four bronze medals: Lauro Chaman and Carlos Alberto in the time trial, and Jady’s two laurels.
