Bebe Vio's dream comes true: at ‘WEmbrace Sport’ the Olympic and Paralympic champions will compete together. In the wake of the success of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, WEmbrace Sport wants to unite both Olympic and Paralympic athletes for an evening of all-embracing integrated sport!
In the wake of the successes achieved by Italian athletes at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, WEmbrace Sport - a unique all-embracing integrated sporting event - will be held on Monday 25th October at the Allianz Cloud sports arena in Piazza Stuparich in Milan.
This special evening is organized by the non-profit association art4sport - of which Bebe Vio, the Italian Paralympic champion in wheelchair fencing, is the promoter. The proceeds will launch projects in Milan that will encourage children with disabilities to start practicing Paralympic sports.
For the first time ever, Olympic and Paralympic champions divided into two teams will compete together in 4 different sports disciplines, all in their Paralympic version: fencing, basketball, football and volleyball.
Bebe Vio herself will present the event, testimony par excellence for the sheer tenacity of an athlete with disabilities.
The objective is to demonstrate to the public how a Paralympic sport is, in all respects, comparable to an Olympic one and also to raise awareness on the issue of diversity to demonstrate that disability should not be a barrier but a sign of uniqueness and a means to achieve amazing results.
As the name suggests, WEmbrace Sport hails the concept of togetherness and the need to break down the barriers of prejudice to demonstrate that integrated sport is not only possible but that it can also achieve the level of professionalism and competitiveness typical of the Olympic world.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Ticket price for participation: € 15. For children under 18: €10.
Access to the event is free for persons with disabilities, paid entry for accompanying persons.
The funds raised will be donated to the Mission of the non-profit association art4sport.
