Guglielmo Capolino was born on 26 April 1979 in Sassari, although he has always lived in Cagliari, where he currently works in the family business. He’s loved football from an early age, so much so that he started training at five with good results. He stopped after an accident in 2006 that resulted in a spinal cord injury and a diagnosis of paraplegia. Nevertheless, he wanted to be self-sufficient even in small things right from the start, heeding the motto he learnt from his grandfather: “more than yesterday and less than tomorrow”.
He learnt about Obiettivo3 through social media and joined in November 2019, driven by the desire to remain self-sufficient even in sport. Thanks to O3’s support, he got on a handbike and from that moment on, his ambition has been to keep riding. Besides cycling, his heart belongs to his daughter Gaia, born in January 2015, the love of his life.
