Continuting with the No Limits Weekend sports coverage…
On Sunday May 26, 2013 there was an all-abilities-welcome day of archery.
The event had some celebrity presence. Veronica Floreno–recieved Silver at the 2010 European Para-archery Championships and finalist in the 2012 Paralympics–and Nino Lisotta–2010 Italy Champion–were both present and showed us what they’ve got!
It was a very impressive demonstration! There were also others taking their shots on the field. There is a team in Palermo called AS.D Dyamond Archery–it is a large group of archers with mixed abilities. This member explained that archery is the only sport that it doesn’t matter if you are in a chair or not. They are about 50 members strong and open to new members.
