"Wherever you go, go with all your heart...
Today my son turns 10 months old and this very day, after many years dedicated to biathlon, I decided to end my professional career.

Motivation and love for biathlon are still there, but with today I chose to dedicate my whole self to my family, because I feel proud and satisfied of my results and all that I have lived until today.

Too often we live in the past, or we are afraid of the future, forgetting to live fully in the present.

The "inner peace" that my little Paul gives me is impossible to describe, but it has been with me since the day he was born and I want to enjoy it every day with him.

It's not an easy step to take, but I know it's time to start something new and trust the beauty of a new life's beginning.
THANKS, with all my heart, to my family, my friends and FAN, to C.S. Esercito and the sponsors who were with me for all these past years, for your help and support.

The most beautiful thing in the world is to love and be loved. Without big proclaims, I just want to share this news with you. These words come from my heart and I want to wish all the best to you all that followed and helped me in all these years."
