Over the last 14 weeks the selection of Portugal is doing weekly internships in Coimbra, in these interns also a few athletes from other nations compete, especially Brazil. The team was in Portugal for many weeks. Brazil took eight gold medals, Spanish Alberto Gaitero the only gold for his country and the home country celebrated four gold medals for Portugal. Perhaps we should count in Taciana Cesar who lives in Portugal who took gold U52kg, still going strong.
