Sara Conti and Niccolò Macii: confirming their top world ranking

Sara Conti and Niccolò Macii, athletes of the Italian national ice skating team, have numerous successes on their list of achievements in the 2022/2023 season, including gold at the European Championships in Espoo and bronze at the World Championships in Saitama. In the following season, 2023/2024, they took second place in three Grand Prix competitions, ranking first in the world rankings.

HPM started following Sara and Niccolò from the beginning of the 2022/2023 season, taking care of assessment, physical-athletic performance monitoring and off-ice athletic scheduling. HPM staff supplement the work done by the pair on ice with other activities such as ballet and acrobatics to balance the daily training load.

The aim is to provide Sara and Niccolò with full support in all their activities, with continuous dialogue between HPM and the coaches who follow them on the ice.

HPM’s contribution extends throughout the competitive season, involving at least three assessments per year, daily monitoring of health and nutritional status, as well as long-term weekly athletic scheduling to optimise fitness at key times of the season. Introducing the HPM method has helped address any physical deficiencies found after the assessments, in a gradual process agreed upon with the professionals following the pair. In addition, the support of a physiotherapeutic and therapeutic medical team is guaranteed to better manage any pain or injury during the season.
