Francesco Schisano, 23 years old, he is an athlete of “Circolo nautico Stabia”, one of rowing club most titled in Italy. At his young age, Francesco, has already won 3 gold medals and he excelled during Italian National rowingcoxless race with Vincenzo Serpico. In the 2013 because of a strange cardiac arrhythmia, the sport fitness was withdrawn and Francesco lost the possibility to partecipate at World rowing race. He sees his teammates keep on winning race, he sees Vincenzo, get in “Fiamme Gialle”: the only way to live of rowing, a poor sport but full of passion.  So that, it returns the physical fitness and with it the desire to fight for the dreams of lifetime. It is not easy to get back to rower boat and restart your training without being able to mach yourself with the athletes of Italian National rowing, but in Castellammare di Stabia , under the  judgement of ” Abbagnale Brothers” Francesco gives all his possible to get his goals; first national race , then  World Championship.
