Alex Zinardi

For those who don't know, he was a Formula 1 and American Cart driver, who was involved in a crash in Germany in 2001, following which he had to have both legs amputated.  As a fiercely competitive elite athlete, he switched very successfully to a career in handbiking, in which he is now a four-time Olympic champion. 

On Friday he was involved in a crash with a lorry in Pienza, Italy.  He was flown by helicopter to Siena, where he was operated on, and is now on a ventilator, in "serious" condition, in intensive care.  

He's certainly a fighter.  I wish him the swiftest, fullest possible recovery.
