Triumph over Adversity: Miguel Ángel Sabalaga Rivera, Ambassador of Hope and Overcoming for Gogoa and Movex Clinics

In the world of adapted sports, perseverance and willpower are qualities that stand out among athletes. But there are cases that go beyond, cases that inspire and motivate all those facing similar challenges. Miguel Ángel Sabalaga Rivera is one of those exceptional cases, and today we are proud to announce that he has become the first official ambassador for both Gogoa and Movex Clinics.

Miguel Ángel has traversed a path full of obstacles and challenges since a tragedy changed his life forever. A few years ago, while at work, a crane fell on him, bending his body in half. In that instant, he noticed one leg felt nothing, and gradually, the sensation in the other leg faded until he felt nothing at all. This tragic incident resulted in a T12 ASIA D spinal cord injury of traumatic etiology, leaving Miguel Ángel with a series of spinal and medullary injuries challenging his ability to move and his life in general.

 

However, he found a ray of hope in the robotic neurorobotics clinics of Movex Clinics. Here, with the help of cutting-edge technology and the unwavering support of a dedicated team, he began his journey to recovery. Despite the immense challenges he faced, Miguel Ángel clung to unwavering determination and unwavering faith in his ability to overcome this adversity.

In Miguel Ángel's own words as he rehabilitated with us: "Getting up from the chair was like seeing my child being born." These words summarize the enormity of his achievement and the emotion that accompanied every step of his progress. As he immersed himself in the rehabilitation process, he discovered a new strength within himself, a strength that carried him beyond what he ever believed possible.

 

His commitment to personal improvement did not stop at the clinic. Miguel Ángel is passionate about sports, and through handbike, he has found a way to express his determination and skill. With remarkable skill, he often reaches the podium in every competition he participates in, especially excelling with silver medals.

Despite the physical limitations imposed by his injury, Miguel Ángel has exceeded expectations and has demonstrated time and time again his ability and dedication to sport and life itself. His calendar is filled with exciting challenges: from the athletics track to the most prestigious marathons, such as those in Seville, Barcelona, Madrid, and Jaén, as well as half marathons in the Spanish capital. Additionally, he competes in diverse locations such as Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona), Madrid, the Basque Country, and the Canary Islands.


Most inspiring of all is that Miguel Ángel not only competes for himself but also carries the banner of overcoming and human potential. As the official ambassador of Gogoa and Movex Clinics, he represents the fundamental values of perseverance and indomitable spirit.

 

When the therapist tells you they can't do anymore, this 'frame' becomes your second body and allows you to look out the window," reflects Miguel Ángel on his experience with rehabilitation technology. It is a touching testimony of how technology can not only restore physical mobility but also uplift the human spirit.


Miguel Ángel has achieved something truly extraordinary by becoming a symbol of hope and overcoming for many. At Gogoa and Movex Clinics, we are proud to support people like him, whose stories of overcoming remind us of the infinite capacity of the human being to face challenges and triumph over adversity. His dedication and passion are a reminder that, with determination and proper support, there are no limits to what we can achieve.


Additionally, we want to celebrate his recent achievement in Seville as our ambassador, where he achieved an official time of 2 hours, 10 minutes, and 5 seconds, covering a total of 42.51 km. It is an exceptional time, and we are delighted to congratulate him on his incredible achievement!
