A bronze medal at Tokyo 2020 in K1 1000, the limiano defends in Canada the world gold in this discipline, won in 2021 in Copenhagen, where he was also silver in a competition that took place shortly after the Olympics.

We have already started the season very well with medals at the World Cup, which has opened up good prospects for the work we are doing. It will be race after race in the world,” says the athlete, who will run the K1 500, 1000 and 5000, as well as the K2 500 in combination with Teresa Portela.

Pimenta is already “focused” on Paris 2024, but he doesn’t see French competition as the last chance to do so, the end of the line, as Los Angeles 2028 is “only” four years later.

It’s step by step. Focus on this cycle first, and then see how I’m doing mentally and physically, how I’m holding up. It is very important to be emotionally motivated and continue to enjoy what I do, ”he emphasized.

Teresa Portela, the best canoeist in Portugal, is mainly focused on the Olympic K1500, but hopes to qualify for mixed K1 200 and K2 500 finals with his friend Fernando Pimenta.

It’s nice to be able to compete with him. If we get a medal it is always welcome, but that is not the purpose of this World Championship. be able to share [uma medalha] with Pimenta would also be the reward for all my travels over the years,” he suggested.

This contest, which will serve as a “pressure reliever”, does not divert the attention of Teresa Portela, who wants above all to “keep the world finals contest going on since 2010 consistent”.
