The Gladiadores are one of the best club sides in Brazil.  Six members of the team were called up for a recent national team training camp.  These players included  Moisés Batista, Gilson Wrizma Jr, José Raul Guenther, Helder Prado Jr, Anderson Kaiss and Rafael Hofmann.  The Brazilian side is looking to do well at the upcoming 2015 Para Panamerican Games in Toronto, and hopefully be medal contenders at the 2016 Summer Paralympics played on home soil.
