Fernando Pimenta

It is with great pride that I congratulate our athlete Fernando Pimenta for the gold medal in K1 5000 meters. At the European championships in Munich, the resilience imposed itself in a unique way, crowned with today's win.

The is the deserved reward for all the effort carried out over this year, adding this medal to the others achieved in this competition – bronze in K1 500 meters and silver in K1 1000 meters.

Fernando Pimenta is one of the greatest sportsmen in our country, a role model for the youngsters. Therefore, it is a great honor to count with his presence in the Olympic Project of Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

Congratulations for the 121st medal in international competitions. An extraordinary path which makes us proud.
