Tamberi champion with yellow: what sparks with Fassinotti!

On the day of super Vallortigara (1.98!) Gimbo beaten by Starc, tricolor title taken in the play-off with 2.26, but refuses to shake hands with his rival and is punished. “He told me ‘you won’t jump anymore'”. Marco: “It’s not nice for an Olympic champion”

The last day of the Absolutes is in the name of women. In the lead Elena Vallortigara who, on the platform of the top, flies (up to 1.98). As she is unable to do Gimbo Tamberi, the most awaited of the afternoon. The Olympic champion wins the sixth Italian outdoor title, but does not go beyond 2.26. And after four errors at the quota. Four, yes. Because at the top of the standings, exceeded 2.23, the Ancona rider is paired with Marco Fassinotti. And here, contrary to what happened at the Games with Mutaz Barshim, he goes to the playoffs. Both fail a fourth time 2.26 and then exceed 2.24. Back to 2.26: the Piedmontese does nothing, the Marche goes beyond the bar. Not enough to win the race, because the Australian Starc, despite being out of the standings, hit the 2.26 in the right time. And then…

The bad episode

An evening marked by a bad episode, regardless of who is to blame, which costs Tamberi a yellow card for unsportsmanlike behavior (“blatant gesture”), as per the official match sheet. We see Fassinotti going to shake hands with his rival and the rival who pushes him away in a bad way. “It was I who tried to greet him – claims Gimbo – and he, as on other occasions in the past, addressed me with an unhappy phrase. ‘You can’t jump anymore, he told me, knowing full well that my only goal of the day was to go much higher ”. In any case – even if the attitudes on the podium were more cordial – an episode to be forgotten, also because it happened under the eyes of many young people, to whom Tamberi later granted himself with his usual generosity. “I heard that he was asking to continue – reports the color bearer of the Air Force – to clarify the situation without him getting further nervous, I just said” I don’t think we can. “Everyone, however, saw how it went. I’m not even taken it: do what you want, as always. But we are adults: I even asked that he not be given the yellow card, which for me was not a problem. It is not nice for an Olympic champion. continue? We didn’t talk to each other: that was fine with me, I think about him too “. It remains that the policeman, thinking about the World Cup, is going through a difficult moment. “I have technical problems – he admits – and in addition the discomfort at the insertion of the left leg, the dead leg, does not make me feel serene. It’s nothing serious, but he conditions me in the last three supports. I hope to resolve everything quickly and that the blue shirt, like so many other times, will allow me to change my skin “.

What a Vallortigara!

Much better goes to Vallortigara. The Vicenza signs the second world performance of the season. Only once, in the course of her career, has she done better. On July 22, 2018, when at the London Olympics, she jumped a whopping 2.02. Then several 1.96 and many physical troubles. Until this definitive resurrection that projects it towards important international results. In the world, outdoors, this year only the Ukrainian Yaroslava Mahuchikh, with a 2.01 and a 2.03 awaiting approval, did better. “I have found a new stability – says the carabiniera – and at the World Cup I really hope to enter the final which, in the absolute international reviews, has always escaped me”.

the others

It was said of women. Ayo Folorunso, in the 400 hurdles, with 54 ”60, hits the second Italian all-time performance, 6/100 from Yadi Pedroso’s 2013 record. Daisy Osakue throws the puck at 63.24: only herself and Agnese Maffeis, with 63.66 , they did better in the tricolor history of the specialty. Larissa Iapichino grows six centimeters and wins the title with 6.64 and wins points for the ranking that should guarantee her confirmation among the “fished out” for the World Cup. Chiara Rosa, in the last match of a career that lasted 27 years, wins the 30th “Scudetto”. And, with her words, she moves. Like Dalia Kaddari (22 “87 / + 0.6 in 200) and Alice Mangione (51” 65 in 400). Less glory in the men’s field. Above all because in the 400 of Edo Scotti (45 ”69), after the recent barrels, Ale Sibilio gets hurt and stops after 200 meters. A serious injury to the rectus femoris is feared. Like, above all, Nick Ponzio: 21.34 in weight. Now the wait shifts to the composition of the team for Eugene. With all five relays involved, it will consist of about sixty athletes. The federal council, meeting on Monday in Rome, will define it pending the formalization of the target numbers on Thursday. For the names of the relay runners, on the other hand, in all likelihood, the end of the Mediterranean Games will be expected.
