In 2020, she won the gold medal in the women's 70 kg event at the 2020 Pan American Judo Championships held in Guadalajara, Mexico.[5] The following year, Portela represented Brazil at the 2020 Summer Olympics.[6] She competed in the women's 70 kg event,[7] being controversially eliminated in the second round against Madina Taimazova, in a ten minute golden score overtime where one hit that would have given Portela a win was dismissed by the referees,[8] and also was part of the mixed team competition.[9]
