The Paralympic mega-champion Clodoaldo Silva paid a visit to the Brazilian exhibitions at Casa Brasil, at Somerset House in London this Tuesday.
The athlete, who holds the greater number of Paralympic medals amongst
Brazilians, next to the former sprinter Ádria Santos, checked out the
contemporary arts and design exhibition “From the Margin to the Edge”.
Clodoaldo has a cerebral palsy due to lack of oxygen at birth, which has
affected his legs movement and has caused a slight lack of coordination. The
“Paralympic Shark” has also visited the exhibition “Brasil: The time is now.”
Since Beijing 2008, Clodoaldo has been competing in
the S5 sport class category. In the latest edition of the Paralympic Games
where he competed in the S4 category at the Athens Games in 2004, he won six
gold medals. Finally, the athlete has visited the exhibition “Passion and
Transformation” that shows the transformation process that Rio de Janeiro is
going through since it has been elected host city for the 2016 Olympic and
