I am a member of the Army Sports Group in Courmayeur (AO). I have always loved sports. At the age of three, I already owned skis and skates. A few years later, whie I was skiing, I met a group of snowboarders and, from that moment on, I decided to set aside my skis and learn to use a board. I remeber that, in an essay at elementary school, I wrote that my goal would be to take part in the Olympics, and at Sochi in 2014 my dream came true. I like to travel, cook, and I have a great interest in environmental matters. In summer, when I am not doing pre-season training, I enjoy climbing or riding my mountain bike, or I load up my van and go and ride the waves on my surfboard.
