Running, Cycling, Swimming, Skiing, soon Triathlon
I always start my races with a cup of coffee.
Most embarrassing sport moment:
I was a pacemaker for timing 4h 15 min at the Venice marathon in 2019: I stopped 2 minutes for cramps at 37km with the other runners who urged me not to give up. I did not do it and I ended the race in the correct time.
Proudest sport moment:
The 2018 Passatore 100km Race: I walked from the first to the last km due to an accident to my leg.
