The paralympic world is a strong sports and human experience; it helps to deeply understand sport and it teaches how everyone can overcome his phisical limits following his passions.

Giorgio Caruso, head officer of the Italian Federation of Fancing, took part as journalist at two Olympic and Paralympic Games. He said that he would prefer partecipate to another Paralympic Game rather than an Olympic one, because he thinks that this is the best experience for a sport’s lover. The Paralympic games change you as a person.
