With 27 Paralympic medals in his career, Daniel Dias said goodbye to the competitions last Wednesday (1), in the final of the 50 meters (m) freestyle, which ended in fourth position. In the Japanese capital, the Brazilian won three bronze medals, in the 200 m freestyle, 100 m freestyle and in the 4×50 m freestyle mixed 20 points relay.
This will be the third time that Daniel Dias will carry the Brazilian flag through the Olympic stadium during a Paralympic Games ceremony. The swimmer was the standard bearer at the closing of the 2008 Games (Beijing) and at the opening of the 2012 Games (London).
