Cuban paralympic athletes to travel to Brazil
The island's delegates will compete in track and field, swimming and judo. In that latter discipline Cuba won the first spot among 38 countries at a world tournament held in France in 2006.

President of the National Blind Association, Amado Gonzalez Landa, said that among the Cuban competitors are judokas Yangaliny Jimenez and Victor Martinez -both world champions-, several medalists in track and field, and swimmer Adonis Leon -who was a bronze world medalist in South Africa.

Gonzalez noted that another group of 50 physically impaired athletes -the island's largest representation of this kind ever at an international event- will arrive in shortly Rio de Janeiro to participate at the Para-Pan-American Games to take place in that Brazilian city on August 12-19.
