Sao Paulo, Oct 16 (EFE) .- Brazilian gymnast Ana Paula Scheffer, a bronze medalist with the hoop at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio, was found lifeless this Friday at the age of 31, in the house where she lived with her parents , in the municipality of Toledo, state of Paraná.
Scheffer, currently working as a coach for promising youngsters, was “one of the most notable rhythmic gymnastics athletes of her generation,” the Brazilian Gymnastics Confederation (CBG) said in a statement.

In addition to the bronze medal at the Rio Pan American Games, Ana Paula Scheffer participated in the 2005 Pan American Games, as well as the 2006 South American Games in Buenos Aires and the 2010 South American Games in Medellín.

“Ana Paula Scheffer is one of the athletes who built our rhythmic gymnastics and who made it a source of pride for all Brazilians,” said the president of the CBG, María Luciene Cacho Resende in the note.
“In addition to inspiring, I had an important job of training new athletes in Paraná. It is leaving too soon, but it will not be forgotten. My condolences to family and friends,” he added. EFE
