Sport makes us stronger
Learn the stories behind four different athletes with one common denominator: overcoming their limits.
Emma Quaglia, an upstream race. An untamable spirit and an endless training have helped her overcome the scariest enemy: disease. It takes perseverance to reach one’s goal!
Reaching the finish line takes patience! I beat my disease. Now I fear nothing!! When you run for a cause, the victory is not only for yourself but for others too. Luckily marathons are also a way to raise awareness for certain illnesses and diseases and this gives the athletic performance an even higher value.
Reach for the stars! Alessandro Giannessi tells us how his dream is a source of inspiration and energy. The end goal, one step at a time, one match at a time, is to go all the way to Wimbledon!
I let my dreams push me on, because the more you achieve, the more you believe you can do it. I don’t fear sacrifices because I know they will lead me to victory and allow me to really appreciate the moments when I overcome obstacles and reach what looked like an impossible goal. My motto is: I’ll do whatever possible to make my triumph inevitable.
Train and learn how to tap into her most profound inner strength during that emptiness in which she resides while she is between two worlds. Cinzia Calapai confesses the countdown is neverending, a moment suspended in time where suffering and joy are blended together, a moment that allows her to truly contact her inner self.
Apnea is my greatest passion but it is also a journey that takes me to a place which is only mine, a place that allows me to access a very, very deep and unexplored emotional space. It requires knowing your limits and your strengths and being responsible for your choices. Impossible is an opinion.
He was pointed out for his talent and embarked on a journey that seemed almost impossible: this is the story of Pape Cherif Ba, a karateka with a big dream: to participate at Tokyo Olympics 2020, where Karate will be featured for the first time. To gain entry, potential athletes need a special ranking: only the first 5 in Pape’s category (- 67 kg) will be able to participate.
Karate is a school of life. Inspired by my teacher Soggiu, I learned to persevere and reach for my goals, I gained confidence in myself and in my future! I train to be strong, I train to be a champion, I train to feel good, I train for fun, I train to forget my problems, I train for the thrill, I train because it is part of my life.
Together with my Teacher Marco Soggiu and Cambiaso Risso I will be able to push my limits and heighten my performance, both in sport and in life.
Winning is an attitude.
