Career history

Batista was born able bodied, but after a road accident in May 2005 part of his left leg needed to be amputated. While in hospital he was visited by para-athletic organisations offering sport as a way to help in his recovery. He refused to accept their invitation for over two years, before changing his mind. In 2011 he was part of the Brazilian team which entered into the 2011 Parapan American Games. He entered the javelin and discus, both in the joint F57/58 class, winning the javelin and coming third in the discus. He followed this by being selected for the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London, entering all three throwing events in the F57/58 class. In the discus, he threw a distance of 45.90m, which did not convert to enough points to see him onto the podium, finishing instead at fourth place. In the shot put he finished seventh. His strongest event, the javelin, saw him record a distance of 45.38m, a new world record, only to see his rival, Iran's Mohammad Khalvandi, also throw a world record as a F58 athlete to snatch the gold from Batista dos Santos by 20 points.
