Category “The social values in sport”

Her family has always believed and supported her. After having played several sports, she discovers the world of athletics. She has specialised in 100 and 200-metre run, javelin throw and long jump.

When she first took part in the World Championships, she won 4 gold medals and one silver medal. Anyway, this cannot replace the absence of her granny - who passed away - to whom she dedicated all her victories.

President Mattarella mentioned her as an example of tenacity and goodwill. She took part in an Italian Tv show, where she stood out thanks to her being nice and broke the long-standing taboo, according to which people like her are supposed to be relegated to marginal activities.

Vietato dire non ce la faccio (Never ever say I cannot do it) is her motto and the title of her biography.


Gli sportivi di alto livello hanno una responsabilità che va ben oltre il fare onore alla maglia che indossano, al club o alla nazione che rappresentano.
Agli occhi dei giovani essi incarnano lo spirito, l’essenza stessa dello sport
