The Parliament approved unanimously yesterday a vote of praise to the Algarve athlete Joana Schenker, who became the national bodyboard champion for the sixth consecutive time on May 19th.
"Joana is a four-time European champion, having been the first bodyboarder in Portugal to become the world champion of the professional circuit in 2017," said the text, presented by PAN deputy André Silva.
The athlete had already been honored by the President of the Republic on April 22, receiving the Official Degree of the Order of Merit for the sporting achievements already achieved.
"Joana Schenker assumes herself as an inescapable figure of the modality with very specific characteristics, which allows a full development and promotion of physical, psychological and emotional benefits in a context of full communion with nature", emphasizes the PAN.
The People-Animal-Nature vow of praise to the Sagres athlete in Vila do Bispo was approved by all other party forces represented in the Assembly of the Republic.
