Uruguayan amputee Dario Silva wants to row at London 2012 Olympics

Silva_dario_pfc_profile_2005Former Portsmouth striker Dario Silva has announced he hopes to compete as a rower at the 2012 Olympics despite having a leg amputation in September. The ex-Uruguay international lost part of his right leg in a car crash, but is hopeful of competing at the London games.

He said: "I have a lot of free time to dedicate to rowing with a view to going to the Olympics, something I have never done as a sportsman. I don't know if I can win, but at least I will compete." Silva, who will be 39 by then, said the 2008 Olympics in Beijing would come too soon after his recent surgery.
