Valerio Casanova, Deutschland und Italien – WMOC2022

Valerio Casanova, Deutschland und Italien – WMOC2022  Valerio Casanova, Jahrgang 1966, Kategorie H55, aus Ligurien, Sohn einer apulischen Mutter, verheiratet mit Milena Grifoni, Kategorie D50 und ehemalige Athletin der italienischen Nationalmannschaft. Milena ist die Tochter von Sergio, dem ehemaligen Präsidenten des FISO (Italienischer Orientierungslaufverband) und Mitglied verschiedener IOF-Kommissionen.  Geben wir Valerio das Wort, damit er sich selbst vollständig vorstellen kann: Ich habe mit dem Orientierungslauf beinahe “gezwungenermaßen” begonnen: mein erstes Rennen habe ich nach einer einzigen theoretischen Lektion von Sergio bestritten, ein Italiencuplauf in der Kategorie H20 (damals ‘Nationale Qualifikation’ genannt) auf dem Gelände von Santo Stefano d’Aveto, wo ich nach 3 Stunden per Anhalter ankam. Ich weiß nicht, ob es ein Test war, den Sergio für mich vorbereitet hatte, aber irgendwie muss ich bestanden haben. Sowohl Milena als auch ich haben die deutsche Trainerlizenz, und ich habe jetzt auch die Trainer A”-Lizenz, also den Bundestrainer. Seit 2009 trainieren wir in Regensburg eine tolle und sehr starke Gruppe, von der Sie vielleicht schon gehört haben und von der Sie sicher in ein paar Wochen wieder hören werden (z.B. am Sellajoch bei der Relay of the Dolomites, wo wir mit einigen Teams dabei sein werden).
