The Brazilian Olympic Committee (BOC) will send a delegation of about 200 athletes, divided into groups from July to December, for training in Europe.

The entity intends to accelerate back to training safely during the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in Brazil.

"For the BOC it is worrying to see our athletes without training conditions due to the real need to maintain isolation to control the pandemic in the country. We know how important it is to win the battle against the coronavirus, at the same time that we work for the Brazil Team to be on an equal footing with its main opponents", says the vice president of BOC, Marco Antônio La Porta Jr.
