The Mexican delegation responded with more than enough response at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, and what they achieved in this summer fair is the best harvest of medals in the last four competitions and the seventh best in all history.
Led by Diego López and Amalia Pérez as flag bearers, There were 22 medals that were obtained in the capital of the Japanese country with seven golds, two silver and 13 bronzes, which far exceeded what was done in Rio 2016 and London 2012.
In Tokyo 2020, the discipline that obtained the most medals was Swimming, and that is, of the 22 metals obtained, there were 10 in the pool, of which three were gold, one silver and six bronzes.
Then, it was Athletics and its different modalities that achieved the most medals with eight medals, two gold, one silver and five bronze, while Judo added two more metals and Taekwondo one to complete the 22.
Although the impulse that Swimming had in this fair was important, the Athletics continues to command historically as the discipline that has contributed the most medals in the history of the Games.
And it is that since 1976, when Mexico participated for the first time in the Paralympic Games, and until Rio 2016, Athletics has won 196 medals, more than triple that of Swimming, a sport that is the second with the highest number of metals in history, with only 67 in the same period.
Then follows Weightlifting with 14, Judo with five, Table Tennis with three and thus closes the top five of the disciplines with the most medals in the history of Mexico.
