Arthur Nory took to social media late last week, saying that his house had been burgled while he was away at training.
His Olympic bronze and World gold were not taken, but the Pan American Games 2019 team gold medal and all-around and horizontal bar silvers were taken.
Panam Sports had previously stated that they were happy to replace the medals, but that wasn’t needed.
“Recovered medals,” Team Brasil tweeted Wednesday morning. “The [Military Police of the State of Sao Paulo] found Arthur Nory’s medals!”
According to Brazilian media reports, the medals were found in a box inside a waste bin in Osasco, a town near Sao Paulo.
“The thieves wrote a letter to say sorry and even cleaned the medals,” the Brazilian Olympic Committee account added in its post.
“Thank you very much!” wrote Nory in a post on his own Instagram. “I’m shaking all over and you can’t imagine what a thrill it is.
“Gratitude to all,” he ended.
