The Mexican swim team is currently attending a national team camp ahead of 2015 IPC Swimming World Championships, scheduled to get underway in Glasgow, Scotland on July 13.



Team management has been happy with team performance so far at camp, and believe that swimmers have the right attitude to succeed in Glasgow.


The team is likely looking to improve on its performance at the 2013 IPC Swimming World Championships in Toronto. Then 41-year-old Nely Miranda Herrera won three gold medals at the event in the Women’s 100m Freestyle S4, Women’s 200m Freestyle S4, and Women’s 50m Freestyle S4. Then 44-year-old Patricia Valle claimed three medals in five events including gold in the Women’s 50m Butterfly S3, silver in Women’s 200m Freestyle S3, and bronze in the Women’s 150m Individual Medley SM3. Then 31 year old Juan Reyes won gold in the Men’s 50m Backstroke S4. Youngster Gustavo Sanchz Martinez won five medals in seven events. The medals included gold in the Men’s 200m Freestyle S4, silver in the Men’s 50m Freestyle S4, bronze in the Men’s 100m Freestyle S4, bronze in the Men’s 50m Backstroke S4, and bronze in the Men’s 50m Butterfly S4.
