Human Tecar, partner of the Italian Paralympic Committee in Rio, celebrates record medal table

21 September, 2016 - Categories: Events Sport

If sports’ deeper meaning is in overcoming limits – running faster, jumping higher, raising the bar further and further – what can we say of athletes who’ve overcome the most ruthless of limits: their own body? At Human Tecar, we’ve come to know them well, given them all the support our method can supply.

These are amazing men and women whose achievements go well beyond sports performance: Alex Zanardi, Martina Caironi, Vittorio Podestà, Roberto La Barbera, Arjola Dedaj, Emanuele Di Marino... This year, Italy’s national team at the 2016 Paralympics has wowed and thrilled at least as much as its August predecessor, bringing our country back into the Top Ten ranking nations for the first time in 44 years: a whopping thirty-nine medals, 10 of which gold, 14 silver and 15 bronze.

Shouldn’t we really call them Superolympics? It’s marvelous to hear our athletes’ tales of ‘ordinary heroism’, tenacity and perseverance; even more wonderful is realizing how thanks to them, the approach to disability is finally veering from commiseration to empathy, admiration and respect – disability not as deprivation but as the ultimate testing ground of human excellence.
Equally precious, for the Human Tecar crew, is both that special thanks from the top champion we supported, and extending our support beyond the track, in the daily life of all the men and women everywhere who need to overcome obstacles and limits day in, day out, with no podium or medal in sight.
