The Brazilian Confederation of Sports for the Visually Impaired (CBDV) has cancelled all events scheduled for the remainder of 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The CBDV said it was not possible to stage events without risking the health of those involved, giving the prevalence of the virus in Brazil.
Brazil has recorded more than 129,000 coronavirus deaths - second only to the United States - and yesterday reported more than 40,000 fresh cases.
Football, judo, goalball and powerlifting competitions have all been cancelled.
All of the impacted events were due to take place at the Brazilian Paralympic Training Centre in São Paulo.
At present, only table tennis, athletics and swimming activities can take place at the venue because of safety measures put in place to stop the spread of coronavirus, the CBDV highlighted.
The first event cancelled is a football tournament scheduled to begin on Monday (September 14), while the last is the Brazil Powerlifting Cup, which was planned for November 21 and 22.
CBDV President José Antônio Freire said that the organisation was following Ministry of Health and World Health Organization guidelines.
The health and well-being of all involved in putting on events was the CBDV's priority, Freire also underlined.
