Antony Leonardi, born in 1981, is an athlete from Biella. He has had multiple sclerosis for 26 years, a disease he discovered as a teenager after three months of hospitalisation. He has always loved running, cycling and basketball, but in recent years he has decided to kickstart his sporting career. This led him to run the New York Marathon twice, first in a wheelchair, then on a handbike. A double feat that gave him more and more confidence to believe in his big dream: climbing the Stelvio Pass, the highest mountain pass in Italy.
In 2019, he learnt about Obiettivo3 thanks to Annalisa Baraldo, an athlete with the same condition as him, who convinced him to join the Sclerobikers group. Little by little, a meeting with Pierino Dainese opened the doors of Obiettivo3 to him, a milestone he had chased since he’d read Alex Zanardi’s books, a constant source of motivation not to give up and to always believe in one’s dreams. In addition to sport, Antony has several other interests such as singing, photography but above all rock music, especially live.
