INVICTUS

Tânia Chaves, 27 years old, was diagnosed with bone cancer (osteosarcoma) when she was a teenager. Despite chemotherapy, the cancer had spread out to the muscles and, eventually, her left leg had to be amputated. In 2021, Tânia became three-time national champion of adaptive climbing. She was the first Portuguese participating in the world championship of this modality, reaching the 2nd place. 10 year-old Eduardo Dias was born with a physical disability (presumably, Poland syndrome) which caused a deformity in his hands. He started practicing adaptive climbing in October 2019 and by now he is already a national champion. Eduardo is regarded as a very promising young athlete. Tânia and Eduardo, both members of the Braga Climbing Club, are driven by their own resilience and the will to win.
