UPDATE 2: The reporters note that this image and video came when Chapur was in the states following 9/11… this also corresponds with Sanford’s timeline of having met her 8 years ago.
The specific statement from Infobae.com:
The images that are exclusive C5N issued a recent press coverage that María Belén Chapura conducted in the United States met during the first month after the fall of the Twin Towers.
Original post: Well, we now know the name of Mark Sanford’s Argentinean lady friend. It’s Maria Belen Chapur.
She: “runs marathons and is fluent in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.”
The lady in this pic might or might not be her, but it came from the Facebook of a Maria Chapur and she’s standing in front of an Argentinean flag.
Update: The new photo above is her audition for a newscast in 2001. The video (in Spanish) is below. We think if you age the woman above by 8 years, you pretty easily arrive at the lady in the pictures below, making us even more certain that this is her.
And another at what looks like some trendy artist thing.
And another one, showing her eyes
