In a previous life, I took it very seriously and I have had the honour to represent Italy at several international competitions. Some memoirs (and pictures): back in 2007, I took part in World and European Junior Cross-Country Championships. In 2008 I was 5th at Junior World Orienteering Champs. In 2009 I was 12th on 5000m at European Under23 Athletics Championships.
More recently, in 2014 I was still young enough to be selected for World University Cross-Country Championships. I also represented Italy at World Orienteering Championships in Venice.
