Profiles of the para archers from the Americas by country competing at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

  • Country: Brazil
  • Number of archers: Six

The sports legacy in Brazil is perhaps the strongest outcome from its own home Olympic and Paralympic Games five years ago – and the para archery program has benefited. Its six representatives in Tokyo are experienced international archers, including medals winners at continental and world events.

Competing in the compound women’s open event, Jane Karla Gogel is Brazil’s most recognizable para archer after becoming Parapan American Games Champion in Toronto in 2015. Jane broke the 18-meter 60-arrow indoor qualification record three times between November 2019 and January 2020. She finished fifth at the Rio 2016 Paralympics.
