Giovando goes to the world championships He will fight in Spain over the distance of 68 km

Here comes a new call for the athlete from Ozegna Chiara Giovando in the national team. The Canavese athlete has been selected for the absolute world skyrunning championships which will take place from 9 to 11 July in Spain, in the Pyrenees, in Barruera Vall de Boi. It will run over the distance of 68 kilometers, with almost 5000 meters of elevation gain. The event was supposed to take place in 2020, but due to Covid-19 it has been postponed by a year.

The Canavese, which for long-distance races is registered with the Bergamo-based company of Giorgio Pesenti’s Cogliati car team, will leave for Spain on Thursday 8 July from Bergamo’s Orio al Serio airport. He will return to Italy on the evening of Sunday 11. The Canavesana in November 2019 had participated in the world championships in Argentina at Villa La Angostura (mountain running for long distances). On that occasion he crossed the finish line in thirty-seventh absolute position.

The Canavese has never attempted this distance, at most it had run over 60 km. The race is very demanding, there are various peaks that exceed three thousand meters in height to overcome.

The race will take place in the Aigüestortes National Park and San Mauricio Lake, one of Spain’s 14 national parks, the only one in Catalonia.

Giovando turned forty-two in March and is married to Davide Tarella (he too competes in both foot and mountain races). He has an eleven-year-old daughter. She has only been into racing for six years. In the past he practiced ski mountaineering. As a girl she also practiced volleyball playing in the Rivarolo team. This season he took part in the Italian mountain running long distance championship which took place in Cantalupa Ligure, but a physical problem did not allow him to close the race when there were a few kilometers left and he was fifth overall, third Italian. –
