sport is a serious game and for some it is too serious that they think that the only thing that matters is just winning
the crossing of the South Pole by bicycle by Omar Di Felice
Omar Di Felice, 41, is an ultra-cyclist. For years he has been riding his fat bike through the coldest territories in the world, from Iceland to Norway to Lapland. After the 4,000-kilometre crossing in the Arctic at the beginning of 2022, in November the athlete attempted a new feat, which no one else has ever succeeded in: reaching the South Pole in the Antartica unlimited project, to raise awareness, one month before the Cop 27, climate conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, on the state of the most fragile ecosystems, compromised by global warming. Despite the interruption of his ride, due to personal problems, he will not give up “Bike to 1.5°C”, the series of dissemination appointments on climate change in scientific and cultural festivals and in schools, organized together with the scientific partners Italian Climate Network and ESA-European Space Agency.
“Behind my crossings there is the will to explore my limits. Love for the world translates into the discovery of myself and the nature that surrounds me” explains Di Felice.

On December 4, however, on the eighth day of his crossing, Di Felice had to change his plans, due to “serious personal and family problems, which did not allow me to go on”, he explained in a post on Instagram.
Goodbye to Gianluca Vialli: a great football and sport champion!
When I was a child I remember the Champions League final, the only final I’ve ever won since I was born: it was 1996 and Gianluca Vialli was the Campitano. When he raised the cup, his image remained indelible in my mind…

After dedicating himself for years to his career as a technical commentator on various televisions, in 2020 he joined the staf of the Italian national team and contributed to the victory of the European Football Championship.
