Talent Project

No peak is unattainable

Details

The Italian Federation of Paralympic Winter Sports bet on some real talent to represent Italy at the Winter Paralympics in PyeongChang in 2018. DiaSorin chose to actively support these exceptional athletes contributing to their training for the most important competition. That trust was repaid with incredible victories at the 2018 Paralympics, where the Italian national team won 5 medals: giant slalom and slalom (2 gold), snowboard cross and super G (2 silver) and downhill (1 bronze).

Jacopo Luchini and Paolo Priolo are the talented athletes of the snowboarding team, led by Igor Confortin. Along with them, are the athletes of the alpine skiing category, trained by Davide Gros: Davide Bendotti, the Italian champion of Paralympic slalom; Renè De Silvestro third in the giant World Cup sitting category held in Kuthai (Tyrol-Austria) in December 2017.

A team, able to demonstrate on the tracks and in real life, that there are no impossible goals for those who are determined to move forward.
