“Peru is a land of champions”, is said throughout our country. The following Peruvian women have definitely earned a place in the select group of athletes and Para athletes who have made history.

1. Thalía Mallqui

Finally, after a very close battle (5-4), she hung the Silver medal around her neck with the promise of qualifying to Lima 2019 and winning the title at home. Thalía Mallqui also won the second place in the Cochabamba South American Games 2018.

"Training hard to bring back medals to Peru is what motivates me, drives me and makes me feel proud of me," he said.

2. Alejandra Callirgos

Peru participated for the first time in the Youth Parapan Am Games in 2017 and Alejandra and Peru’s Women’swheelchair basketball steam climbed onto the podium to collect our delegation’s second medal in the tournament.

Alejandra Callirgos and Peru’s Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Team received the Bronze medals after facing teams with much more competitive baggage such as Argentina and Chile. Alejandra was the team’s key member during its matches and also joined our list of Ambassadors for demonstrating, both on and off the field, her strength and dedication.

You already know them better! Now it's your turn to support them so that they can qualify to the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games Lima 2019.
