This morning, Sunday 6 June 2021, the last stage of the World Cup held in Sabaudia on Lake Paola ended and for the Oristano champion Stefano Oppo it was another successful weekend with the conquest of a hard-fought medal. silver in the men’s Double Lightweight specialty. Gold to Norway. This concludes the last international appointment before the Tokyo 202ONE Olympics which will begin on 23 July and for rowing will end on Saturday 31 July 2021.

The race. As expected, this morning’s final turned out to be extremely close from the start with a direct clash between the blue crew of Oppo and Ruta and the Norwegian one, who only two weeks ago in Lucerne had snatched the podium from the Azzurri. Mindful of two weeks ago, the lightweight double got off to a strong start with a very high number of strokes to impose the pace on the opponents. At the first pass of the 500 meters it is the Azzurri who dominate the Norwegian boat and maintain a decent advantage until the last pass, that of 1500 meters. However, it is precisely at the end that Brun and Strandli’s Norway 1 shortens the disadvantage with Italy, who after having tried everything at the photo finish and for only 17 cents must surrender to Norway. This is the order of arrival: 1. Norway1 6.14.03, 2. Italy (Pietro Willy Ruta-Fiamme Oro, Stefano Oppo-Carabinieri) 6.14.20, 3. Norway2 6.30.24, 4. Algeria 6.44.50.
