Florencia Gomez , with just 18, has won more sports games than many professionals at his age. However, Florence's most important triumph has been for life, which beats every challenge it imposes.
The young Correntina was born with agnesia lumbrosacra . This has caused your body to not be able to develop normally. This caused other parts to it to be enhanced: the desire to live and the passion for sports. At the age of 3 he started swimming. Being in a wheelchair, Gómez is today a player of paddle tennis, table tennis and adapted basketball.
Basketball has consecrated it: “At the age of 13 he saw me playing Carlos Cardarelli and invited me to participate in the team,” said the young woman. Four years participating with the national team gave him the direct ticket to the Parapan American Youth Games in São Paulo. The results were optimal: gold medal in basketball and recognition as a scorer of the competition 3 vs. 3 in adapted basketball.
We might think that a national athlete would have some support, but even the gold medal representing the country seems to reach to deserve a scholarship. “I don't receive support from the provincial or national government,” Gomez said.
Adapted basketball, like any other sport, requires specific elements. The Florence chair is special and its maintenance is expensive: “Every time I break a shaft, it costs me at least $6000 to repair it.”
Florencia Gómez is an adapted basketball figure, and is the only woman who integrates the Sol Naciente de Chaco squad to play the National League. His constant journeys are sustained solely by his parents. Gómez is Correntina and only in basketball represents another province, in other sports he defends Correntino pride.
The loyalty and love of her parents and siblings is enormous; those feelings are reflected by her in every adapted basketball play. The Correntina has two dreams: to reach a world cup of some of the sports she practices and finish her studies and be a teacher to help all people with disabilities.
