She is one of the most talented Brazilian judokas in history. When she was 16 years old she competed at 2007 Pan American Games and won a silver medal.

In 2008, she competed at Olympic Games in Beijing but lost her only match with Spanish judoka Leire Iglesias.

In 2009, she missed the whole season because of a knee injury.

In 2010, after an injury, Mayra changed category from middleweight to half-heavyweight and won a gold medal at 2010 Pan American Judo Championships in El Salvador. In September of that same year, she participated at the 2010 World Judo Championships and lost the final to Kayla Harrison, from the United States, receiving the silver medal.

In 2012, Aguiar won the bronze medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics, winning three matches by ippon. Her only defeat was again to Harrison, who won the semifinal on the way to a gold medal.

Aguiar became world champion in 2014, defeating the French Audrey Tcheuméo in the final.

With Brazil hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics and Aguiar's recent triumphs, she was the favorite to win the gold. A struggling semifinal with Tcheuméo, where Aguiar was kept scoreless and wound defeated on penalties, sent her again to the bronze match, which Aguiar won, giving her a second Olympic medal.
