Earlier this year in July, at the same time as Italy was securing gold in the Junior Boys’ Team event at the European Youth Championships in Zagreb; Elisa Trotti, a former member of the national junior team, suffered a dreadful motorcycle accident.
She survived but was badly injured; she lost her right arm, her playing arm.

by Ian Marshall, ITTF Publications Editor

Now two months after the accident, she is slowly recovering and is facing a difficult future with a great deal of courage.

“In several interviews she serenely talked about that terrible night, and she seems to be confident about her tomorrow; I saw her smiling and I really think that this young woman, with her incredible power and determination to move forward, is an example in sports and life” Franco Sciannimanico, President Italian Table Tennis Federation

A bank account was opened in July to support Elisa Trotti; donations are gratefully received.

The bank account will close on Sunday 30th September.
