Athletics and swimming secure two more medals for MS at 2022 Youth Games

Two more medals were won by Mato Grosso do Sul on the second day of the 2022 Youth Games on Sunday (4/9) in Aracaju (SE). Bruna Ramos Skaf won silver in the 200-meter backstroke, and Ana Laura Cordeiro closed the 800-meter athletics with bronze. The event, which brings together student-athletes between the ages of 15 and 17, is organized by the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB).

In the pool, Bruna clocked 2min28s65, just behind Vittoria Simioni of Santa Catarina, who closed the race in 2min27s41. South-Mato-Grossens, conceived by Bolsa Atleta’s state program, took second place. “This silver means a lot to me. Only I know how much I dedicate myself to training every day in order to reach that level, a medal in this important national competition,” says the 16-year-old swimmer.

Fourth in the final round of the Brazilian Under-18 Athletics Championships and one of the country’s long-distance talents, Ana Laura Cordeiro arrives in the capital of Sergipe with one goal in mind: to reach the podium in the 800 meters. And so it happened. The athlete from Tres Lagoas took bronze after finishing the heat in 2min 23s 710, alongside Brazil’s Luisa Braga, who clocked 2min 23s 430 to take the silver.

The victory was decisive for the three residents of Lagos, who had recently recovered from injury and were on the podium for the first time in the country’s biggest competition for young athletes. “I was quite worried, but nothing would affect me on the track, and I was able to achieve my goal,” he admits. “It’s a privilege to represent my state and my city and have them on the podium,” Ana Laura concludes.

In total, the Mato Grosso do Sul delegation has already secured three medals in the Games. In addition to the two on Sunday (4), Amanda Campos Abdalla won silver in the swimming 200m butterfly on the first day of competition on Saturday (3).
