With many years of experience (1985-1998) as a guide athlete in the field of disability sport, during the Universiade held in Friuli in 2003, Paul Tavian strongly backed a test event for disabled children. In the following years, thanks to his determination, he managed to attract many important international events to the region, believing this to be the only way to give visibility to a category of athletes that does not always receive the appreciation it deserves.

Therefore, over the past ten years, the mountains of Friuli Venezia Giulia have hosted many international competitions such as the European Cup and the World Cup. These very successful events have been fundamental for our Region to be nominated to organise the 2017 World Championships, the most important event after the Paralympics.
