The 53-year-old Zanardi, whose legs were amputated after a car accident nearly 20 years ago, lost control of his hand bike while competing in a relay in Tuscany, Italy.
Zanardi was then flown to the Santa Maria El Scott Hospital in Siena, where he underwent three hours of emergency neurosurgery and was put into an artificial coma.
The report stated that “the stability of general clinical conditions and the neurological picture allowed the transfer … to a specialized center for recovery and functional rehabilitation.”
So Alex Zanardi was transferred today [Tuesday] To another facility. “
“Today, a new path for Alex Zanardi has begun,” added the director general of the hospital, Valteri Giovanini.
The Italian is an incredibly popular figure. He has been training for this year’s Paralympic Games in Tokyo, hoping to add to his amazing gold medal.
