Silver H4 World Championship Time Trial
Italian Champion Handbike (H4), 2010

What has been your credo in life that helps you overcome each challenge?

You may have reached the top of the world or you may have almost fallen down in the precipice, every day gives you a new chance to build something on the remainders of the day before…

What would be your tip to each person who wants to achieve something in sports?

I would advise to adapt your objectives to the possibilities that you have at that moment. As time goes by, things might improve and dreams may come true, but you cannot expect to become a champion in a second. The most important thing is that you do what you need to do with passion as long as you can. One day, you will be able to reach something with your capacities that is similar to a dream of becoming “Number One”.

What advantages or benefits has the COMPEX Wireless brought to your performance?

I use my Compex to prevent contractures or to loosen up contracted muscles after a tough training or race. Until now, only COMPEX Wireless has given me an efficient solution for my training needs.  Training means gradually increasing the efforts and Compex enables me to do just that, without pain. My Compex helps me keep in shape, improving my performance every day.

What is your ultimate goal in your career?

My goal is to continue my career as an athlete as long as possible. It doesn’t matter if you are riding a hand bike or driving a car. And I never waited for big competitions to reach my happiness. Thanks to the passion for what I’m doing, I felt happy during the Monday’s training, while dreaming about “The Big Sunday” competition. And obviously, in the short term, I would love to win the gold medal, in London.
