It’s been years since the day Martina Caironi’s life forever changed, when she lost part of her left legs because of a road accident with a hit- and-run driver when she was 18. Today Martina is an extraordinary athlete and she is currently the fastest woman with prosthesis in the world. On the horizon there is a special event: the Paralympics Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016. Martina, paralympic champion and world record holder, is faced with months full of workouts, emotions, fears. She won’t need out on this long journey alone: she’ll go on it with friends, family and coaches. Paralympics Games are not her first important competition, but for Martina, Rio de Janeiro is a goal full of expectation, wareness, responsibility. Martina is on the starting blocks, her eyes are focused forward, ready, once again, to Feel the Wind.
