In the relay rule, the classes of athletes that make up the teams cannot, together, exceed 20 points. Remember that the smaller the class number, the more limitations the athlete has. The team that played in the qualifiers should move to the final, to accommodate the entry of Daniel Dias (class S5), the great star of Paralympic swimming in Brazil.
Brazil led their tie in some moments, especially when Gabriel Melone and Patrícia dos Santos fell into the water. Italy took the lead in the last turn of the relay and won first place in the battery, but did not compromise the Brazilian classification. The final will be played this Thursday (26), at 8:00 am (Brasilia time).
