In addition, in Paralympic sports that need guide athletes, they receive 20% of the bonus value of each medal. According to the CPB, if any of them climbs more than one podium, an additional 10% will be awarded to each medal.
The entity’s strategy, with performance by bonus, aims to encourage the participation of athletes in the games. The goal is to place Brazil among the ten largest Paralympic powers. The cash award model has also been adopted by the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB), but with smaller amounts.
