Panathlon blows out 60 candles: “Brotherhood and fair play are the priorities”

by admin

Special birthday for Panathlon Biella. The sports service club of the province was born in July sixty years ago after having received the approval from the godfather association of Vercelli. Thirteen prominent personalities in the local sports scene took the first steps who gave life to the so-called sports senate at 2 in Piazza Adua. A point chosen not by chance, seen at the time in those premises was the headquarters of the Biellese, the heart of the sportsmanship of a city that was trying to relaunch itself in this area as well. And the first president could only be Guido Alberto Rivetti, a pioneer of winter sports in Italy, the one who gave birth to the cable car in Oropa now a century ago and who was the first Biellese as a manager to take part as head of the delegation at the Olympics winter of Lake Placid. Over the years, his place has been occupied by 19 other sportsmen, the last of which Luca Monteleone, manager over the years of the youth sector of Pallacanestro Biella, who now has the task of preparing the celebrations. “We will do it in October – says Monteleone who took over from Franco Bessi in 2020 – and we will try to dedicate an event that we hope will be open to the greatest number of people to the whole population, even those not purely sporting.”

Over the years, Panathlon has become aware of its role in supporting sport for all: young people, the disabled and now also projects related to physical activity over the years. «Panathlon was born to translate into reality – it is still Monteleone who explains – not for a selfish and personal purpose the cardinal concepts of the association. That is “the affirmation of the sporting idea aimed at moral principles as a function of understanding and brotherhood between individuals and peoples” ». Concepts of the Olympic card that lives these days the most beautiful hours with the Games in Tokyo. Monteleone then recalls the activities of Panathlon, the Study Award for all schoolchildren and students, but also for their teachers, the Fair-Play Days useful for affirming those ideals already mentioned above. “Particular attention then to the disabled – Monteleone closes – with the appointments of Provali con noi and the heartfelt one of” Sportamente together … “organized not by chance with all the other Biellese service clubs, united in putting together their skills and their experiences beyond flags and fences ».
