Paris 2024, who are the flag bearers of Italy – breaking latest news

by Gaia Piccardi

95 days after the inauguration ceremony on the Seine, the CONI has decided to follow the IOC’s instructions to promote gender equality (one man and one woman). Tokyo gold in the high jump favored by bookmakers (you can bet on it)

the first photograph that Italy will send to the world from the Paris Games on 26 July, minus 95 days until the inauguration ceremony along the Seine: under the flag two standard-bearers, a man and a woman so as not to disregard the indications of the IOC in the Gender equality Olympics (of the 10,500 participants, half will be athletes), the nomination today after the CONI national council and council.

From Pietro Bragaglia (gymnast who paraded in London 1908 without taking part in the competitions) to the Elia Viviani-Jessica Rossi pair (the cycling and shooting first-timers in the first time of the double standard-bearer at Tokyo 2020), there are 26 Italian standard bearers at the Summer Games, the most represented discipline of fencing (7 times, Edoardo Mangiarotti did an encore in Melbourne ’56 and Rome ’60), followed by athletics (6, double by Ugo Frigerio between Paris ’24 and Los Angeles ’32, back to back by Simeoni and Mennea in Los Angeles ’84 and Seoul ’88) and gymnastics (4, the last time with Yuri Chechi in Athens 2004).

Times have changed, today in the weight of choice (the unwritten rule leans towards an active Olympic champion, better if with a history behind him, that is with continuity in Olympism) managers, social networks and sponsors try to intervene, which has not passed the Armani campaign went unnoticed – the brand that will dress Italy at the Games for the seventh time – which in recent days has projected Gimbo Tamberi onto the pages of newspapers: athletics, in fact, 36 years after Seoul and Mennea, could regain the limelight . Let’s clarify: Tamberi has titles to spare to deserve the nomination, he won everything, in his third Olympics, recovered from a very serious injury that forced him to skip Rio 2016, he was the most beautiful fairy tale in Tokyo thanks to the gold ex aequo with Barshim. he is on pole to fill the men’s box in Paris, the novelty is that you can bet on the Italian flag-bearer and the Snai odds give him at 2.50 against 2.75 for Gregorio Paltrinieri, the very valid alternative that would bring swimming back to the top in a short time after Brazil (our statuesque lady of freestyle, Federica Pellegrini, paraded at the Maracan), rewarding Greg’s long-standing versatility, from the pool (gold in the 1500m in Rio) to open water.

Tamberi-Paltrinieri is a fascinating head-to-head (at the moment Greg’s program foresees high ground up to and including 26 July, the date of the ceremony and inauguration of Casa Italia in Paris with the President of the Republic Mattarella, in the presence of the standard-bearers), so as in the photo finish the other half of the apple will come out: the bookmakers favor Arianna Errigo, an ancient and shared gold (London 2012, team foil), and the generosity of the fencing mine (the sport that gave Italy the most medals at the Games: 130) on the beautiful exploit of Antonella Palmisano in the walk in Tokyo (Sapporo, to be precise); federal president Mei exercised moral suasion on Malag with excellent arguments (half of the 10 gold medals in Japan came from athletics), although it is unlikely that the double champion of Paris represents a single discipline, displeasing friendly and/or deserving federations . In this regard: the idea of ​​Jannik Sinner with the tricolor in hand, relaunched by the ’76 standard-bearer Klaus Dibiasi, was considered a joke even by Binaghi, president of Federtennis and public enemy number one of Malag. Even in the event of triumph, Sinner will not return to Paris for the closing (11 August, the golden sailor Caterina Banti has been alerted): he will already be at the Master 1000 in Toronto and Cincinnati and, as is known (see Sanremo), Jannik does not like to change programs.
