Athletics, Tamberi separates from father-coach – Sports – Other Sports

Rome, 3 July 2022 – Twelve days before the start of the World Championships, scheduled in Eugene, Oregon, sensational news shakes the world of Italian athletics: the professional paths of Olympic gold in the high jump in Tokyo 2020 Gianmarco Tamberi and his father’s coach, Marco, separate. At the base of this drastic decision taken by the champion from the Marches, there are some divergences of views: “I have been taking this decision into consideration for some time – explains Tamberi himself – because in these years of collaborations there have been many excellent results but equally important differences. I took this decision with due caution but also a pinch of courage and it comes from an analysis of the season that I have played so far. We had an exchange of views and differences emerged. This is why I absolutely do not want to compromise what is the most important race of the year by insisting on a path that I do not think is the correct one, only to later eat my hands for not having been able to take the situation in hand “.

World Cup goal

Tamberi then went on to confirm that he is 100% focused on the next World Cup: “Now I will concentrate all my energies on the World Cup without being distracted by the thought of who will help me prepare for next season. Being supervised by another coach is not a gamble because in this discipline the coach is fundamental in training and programming. During the race, other automatisms take over which, together with the athlete’s sensations, are the determining factors in performance. I am an agonist and this is a calculated risk “.
