European Athletics: From Iapichino to Jacobs, Italy sets a record with 24 medals

It is a record-breaking Italy that bids farewell to the European Athletics Championships and also takes the presidential catwalk.

In fact, for every triumph of the evening, compliments arrive from the Head of State, Sergio Mattarella, also this evening at the Olimpico, albeit in private form. Four Italian medals on the final evening of the European Championships in Rome, for a total of 24, of which 11 gold. And the last could only be that of the men's 4x100, already crowned Olympic champion in Tokyo 2021, and world silver to Eugene. Melluzzo, Jacobs, Patta and Tortu deliver first place to the Italians with a relay for three quarters equal to that of the last Olympics, except for Melluzzo in place of Desalu in the first leg. And if Professor Di Mulo's experiments count for anything, then this formation could also be the one in Paris to try to confirm themselves as Olympic champions.

But Italy of speed has never had such a strong team and with over a month to go there are still many things that can change because Ali, Simonelli, Desalu and Rigali are also candidates for a place in the relay. In the meantime the European gold arrives under the watchful eye of Mattarella who, before sitting in the stands, had the opportunity to stop and talk with Tamberi, for whom he cheered from the stadium yesterday and who he will meet again tomorrow at the Quirinale for the delivery of the flag.
