The Mexican delegation broke the 300 Paralympic medal mark on Tuesday with three more medals in Tokyo 2020.

Arnulfo Castorena won the gold medal in the 50m breaststroke final with a time of 59.25 seconds and Jesús Hernández won the bronze medal in the same category, becoming the 300th athlete to reach the podium in the Paralympic Games.

Minutes later, Nely Miranda added the 301st medal for Mexico by finishing third in the 50m breaststroke.

"I'm happy, happy, happy! I have no words, I'm happy, we have to enjoy it. I'm very happy," said José Arnulfo Castorena.

The best participation of Mexicans in the Paralympic Games has been that of Arnhem, in the Netherlands, in 1980, when 42 medals were won and the most discreet, so far, is that of Barcelona with 11 medals.
