Alex Baldaccini is a young Italian professional athlete, specialized in mountain, road running, and cross. This passion for sport has been passed down from his father, who is still his coach.

He is a very talented athlete. Indeed, his success has come soon! in 2012 he was one of the few athletes to wear the Azzurri shirt in two different specialties (mountain running and cross), and was proclaimed athlete of the month of October by the European Athletic Association (EAA).

For the future, Alex dreams of competing at the Olympic Games, and especially of running his favourite specialty, i,e., mountain running, which unfortunately is not (yet) an Olympic sport.
