Category Sport beyond Sport
Upon him shines the gold medal that he won in the K1 slalom category, in which he is an excellent athlete to a worldwide level. Used to the silence of woods and to the swirling of water, Daniele was able to combine his emotions with a discipline in which strength, concentration and a little bit of foolish boldness separate the first from the rest of the group...
Results, then, reassured those who had been believing in him even from his acceptance in the Sports Group of the Forest Rangers. A dedication without yielding, a more and more cultivated application of technique, took him to a continuous series of prestigious objectives, first with the European record, then with the world one, which form a commensurate ring round the Olympic gold medal.
Shy, discreet like the men of his land, he showed Italian people, taking on the role of standard-bearer during the Olympic Games, with how much pride and joy he lived this well-deserved privilege.
For you, Daniele, the applause that one keeps to the canoeist that won everything, everything that there was to win.
