The athletes sponsored by the Aço Cearense Group, through Instituto Aço Cearense, have been outstanding in the sports modalities disputed. Cyclist Gilberto Silva won another medal last Sunday (10th), in the first stage of the Ceará Championship of MTB XCO, in which he secured the 3rd place, even breaking the bicycle handlebar during the course.
Currently, Gilberto Silva, who is a two-time champion of cycling in Brazil (2014 and 2015), ranks 4th in the national ranking of paracyclism and prepares to compete in the first stage of the Brazil Cup of Parascaping, between May 20 and 22, in Sao Paulo.
The other Ceará talent, sponsored by the Institute, took the podium last weekend. The karateca Jonathan Benvindo was in 3rd place in the Brazilian Championship of Karate 2016 - Classification Stage, held in Salvador (BA).
Now, the athlete, already classified, waits to compete in the final stage in October, in São Paulo, and promises to put Ceará in prominence at national level.
