Andrea Lanfri

Born in Lucca on 26 November 1986, Andrea Lanfri contracted meningitis in January 2015, leading to both his legs being amputated below the knee. Lanfri has been involved in athletics since January 2016. He had been a climber since 2012 and continued to climb after the amputation. In July 2016, he managed to climb a 600 metre wall in Corsica (a wall he had climbed just a few months before the illness), fulfilling a promise he had made to himself during his time in hospital. In 2018, he climbed the Cima Grande of Lavaredo, negotiating the so-called “Dibona edge” and Monte Rosa (4,634 metres). Lanfri is aiming to climb Mount Everest in 2019 and has set his sights on the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.
