Portugal wins 17 medals in European athletics for intellectual disabilities

Portugal won four more medals, including three gold medals, at the end of the national participation in the European Indoor Athletics Championships for athletes with intellectual disabilities.

Cristiano Pereira was crowned European champion in the 3,000 meters, a title that adds to the bronze medal won in the 1,500, while Ana Filipe and Lenine Cunha once again won gold in the women’s and men’s high jump, respectively.

Ana Filipe ended her performance in the Europeans with three gold medals (60 meters hurdles, triple jump, and high jump) and one silver (long jump), and Lenine Cunha celebrated, individually, three gold medals (triple jump, long jump, and high jump) and two silver ones (pentathlon and 60 meters barriers).

Also, the 4×400 meter relay, composed by Domingos Magalhães, Lenine Cunha, Carlos Freitas, and Cristiano Silva Pereira, won bronze for Portugal, which closed its participation in the event that runs until Sunday in Nantes, France, with a total of 17 medals.

The Portuguese team reached seven golds, six silvers, and four bronzes, equaling the number of medals they won in the first edition of this competition, in 2000, and being only behind France in the medalist.
