#4 Top Post of 2014: Touch the Sky with Alex Zanardi
Mpower Sports and Recreation, a Disability Sports News Network, is counting down the top posts of 2014. Who will be number one? Stay tuned to our social media pages and sign up for our newsletter to find out. The vision of Mpower Sports and Recreation is to challenge the status quo of ability, sport and athleticism.
This is a short, but very intimate portrait of Alex Zanardi, the former Formula 1 driver and winner of the American Champ Car Series. Alex was already a star, when he had his almost fatal accident at the Lausitzring in Germany. He lost his legs, but not his attitude. Alex Zanardi came back and did the impossible: He won races in the World Touring Car Championship, two gold medals at the Paralympics in London 2012 and just recently added two more hand bike world titles!
Alex Zanardi’s story is part of a feature film ADRENALIN – out November 2014.
