The athletes of theASD Paralympic Mimì Rodoliconamely Anna Abate, Francesco Asaro and Jessica Ingrao, for their successes at an international level, including the bronze medals won at the Trisome Games in Turkey in March.

There is a lot of gratification – president Gaspare Majelli explained to us – this shows that there is also an affection not only of those who manage the sport at provincial level, because Panathlon was the architect of all this, a very attentive structure to give recognition to those who carry out meritorious activities. Receiving an award from the hands of the Prefect is certainly something that gives even more pride and more importance to the gesture itself.” A 360-degree commitment, as the president of the association underlined to us, even if many families do not allow their children with disabilities to dedicate themselves to sport. “There is still a lot of shame – continues Majelli – I have been doing projects in schools for a very long time, I realize that within schools families let their children participate in projects. When we want to take them out, or even in association, the families no longer let them come. There is great shame in exposing your children.”.

There has been no shortage of recognition in recent years:We received recognition from the then president of ARS, Micciché, from the mayor of Palermo, Lagalla, from the prefect of Trapani. What is missing at municipal level… During the electoral campaign everyone is close to everyone else and gives importance to everything, in words. In the end, however, nothing is done. And it’s absurd, maybe I have to think that I’m not part of some magic circle. Only those who find themselves within a path, within a political structure, are supported.”. The issues in relations with the municipal administration, however, are not limited to the lack of recognition: “Despite the wonderful results, we had enormous difficulties finding a gym in which to train. The other associations have always been satisfied with times and days. Despite having a municipal regulation that gives priority to activities for disabled people. Something that I accepted and digested despite myself. Next year, however, I am available, whoever the councilor is, to make a complaint to the Public Prosecutor’s Office. It is not possible – concludes Majelli – that we have to be satisfied with what remains and the others instead have what they ask for”.
