2024 Paris Olympics: Brazil's top medal predictions

2024 Paris Olympics: Brazil's top medal predictions

In the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Brazil showcased exceptional athletic prowess. The country secured an impressive haul of 21 medals—seven of which are gold. Now, how is Brazil expected to perform in the 2024 Paris Olympics?

Brazil’s prospects in individual sports are brighter this year than their team sports categories. Despite high expectations for the men’s football team after winning gold in the 2020 Olympics, the squad failed to qualify this year and defend their title.

However, the Olympics is a grand stage for many sports categories and opportunities to win medals. Here are the predicted highlights of Brazil in the 2024 Paris Olympics:

Top Brazilian athletes and teams to win medals

Brazil has a wealth of talented athletes to compete for medals in various categories at the Paris 2024 Olympics. Although they may not always be the favourites, they consistently put up strong competition against powerhouse teams like the United States (US), China, and Japan.

Here are the top medal contenders representing Brazil at the 2024 Paris Olympics:

Women’s national football team

Currently ranked 10th in the FIFA rankings, they made an impressive top 6 finish at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. This position indicates they’re primed to potentially win at least a bronze medal this year. Moreover, their qualification for Paris 2024, after reaching the 2022 Copa América Femenina finals, shows their resilience and skill.

The spotlight is firmly on the women’s football team to represent Brazil because the men’s team is missing out on Paris 2024 after a narrow 0-1 loss to Argentina in the qualifying tournament. Thus, they are unable to defend their back-to-back gold medals in 2016 and 2020.

Rayssa Leal (Skateboarding)

Rayssa Leal is one of the youngest medalists in the Olympics history, having won the silver medal for street skateboarding in Tokyo 2020 at 13 years old. She’s now 16 and gunning for gold at the 2024 Paris Olympics. Her performance at the 2024 Olympic Qualifier Series Shanghai ended with Leal having the lead of 274.89 points, cementing her as this year’s favourite in her category.

Leal’s success in 2023 also cements her status as a top contender for the Paris 2024 Olympics. Her dynamic performance in the 2023 SLS Super Crown in São Paulo makes her a strong candidate heading into the Olympics.

Filipe Toledo (Surfing)

Three-time gold medalist, Italo Ferreira missed the qualifying event for Paris 2024 due to a knee injury. Thus, Brazil’s hopes of winning rests on Filipe Toledo’s shoulders. A formidable contender, Filipe debuted at the Tokyo 2020 as a reserve member of the Brazilian surfing team and he now steps into the big stage as the main lead for Paris 2024.

Toledo’s pursuit of an Olympic gold medal is supported by his back-to-back victories at the World Surf League (WSL) championship in 2022 and 2023. He also has 17 event wins across the globe (Australia, Hawaii, France, and South Africa). An Olympic gold medal is a missing piece from his trophy collection and the men’s shortboard event at Paris 2024 gives him a golden opportunity to shine.

Ana Sátila and Omira Estácia (Slalom Canoeing)

Sisters Ana Sátila and Omira Estácia will represent Brazil in Slalom Canoeing C1 and K1 events respectively. They won their spot after their performance at the 2023 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships where Sátila reached 5th place and Estácia in the top 25.

Only Sátila will likely end the Olympics with a medal in the solo category if any at all. Tokyo 2020 medalists Jessica Fox, Mallory Franklin, and Andrea Herzog are returning for Paris 2024 which can be a challenge for here. The solo category is a big challenge but pundits have faith that they can at least score bronze or silver as a team.

Marcus D’Almeida (Archery)

Marcus D’Almeida was hailed as the best athlete by the Brazilian Olympic Committee in December 2023. This was after becoming the first Brazilian to lead the 2023 World Archery ranking for his performance in the recurve archery category.

The Paris 2024 will be Marcus’ third appearance in the Summer Olympics and he aims to make it his best yet. It can be exciting to see Tokyo 2020’s 20th-place athlete suddenly become this year’s gold medalist but it can be done after his impressive performances in other leagues.

Brazil’s medal highlights at the Olympics

Throughout Brazil’s history of participation in the Olympics, many unforgettable moments are cherished by fans and athletes alike. However, a few key events in Brazil’s history cemented its place in the world of sports. These are:

1920 Antwerp: Brazil’s debut with medal victories

Brazil joined the Olympics for the first time in 1920 and already took home one of each medal. Guilherme Paraense won the gold medal in the Men's 30-metre military pistol event Afrânio da Costa claimed the silver medal at the Men’s 50-metre military pistol event. The Brazil team, then, won the bronze medal in the team shooting category.

1980 Moscow: Brazil’s first gold medal in sailing

Brazil won two gold medals in the 1980 Moscow sailing category. Both came from the 470 class sailing category and the medalists were Marcos Soares and Eduardo Penido. It started a legacy of Brazil supporting sailing sports in the future. It inspired legends like Torben Grael and Robert Scheidt who represented the country and won medals across all international events.

2016 Rio de Janeiro: Brazil’s first Olympic gold in men’s football

The Brazilian national team suffered a 1-7 defeat to Germany at the 2014 World Cup. With this context, everyone saw their final showdown at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics as a rematch. Team Brazil won this time and took the gold medal, their first victory in the football category in Olympic history.
