The Brazilian Paralympic Centre had a special visitor, as the former Chapecoense goalkeeper and plane crash survivor Jakson Follmann spent the day in the newly built facility in Sao Paulo to try Para sport.

The 24-year-old athlete is one of only six survivors of the plane crash that killed 71 people in November 2016, including players, coaches and staff of the Brazilian football club. The team was travelling to Colombia to play the final of Copa Sudamericana against Colombian side Atletico Nacional when the aircraft crashed just before landing in Medellin. As a result of the accident, Follmann underwent an amputation below his right knee and also has limited movement in his left foot.
