Breaking down barriers

In this interview we hear the testimony of Anna Marchessi. Anna has been skiing and surfing with Play and Train for a few years now. A scriptwriter based in Madrid, she says that sport brings her many benefits both physically and psychologically as she likes to set herself new challenges and work to overcome them.

Anna highlights how the sport puts us all on the same level. Whether you surf lying down, sitting or standing, once you’re on the wave the sensations are the same for everyone.

Likewise, throughout the interview, Mariona and Anna talk about the importance of educating in diversity to get away from many prejudices that we live day by day associated with disability. Sport is a way to break down these prejudices and show that everyone, each in their own way, can enjoy it
