Those 11 dreamlike minutes
- Emanuela Audisio / La Repubblica
All in one night, bathed in sunshine. Or rather, in 11 minutes. Super Golden Sunday. A never-ending journey: from Simeoni to Tamberi. From Bolt to Jacobs. To overtake the world. Two Italian boys. Two bodies that embrace and ask each other: what have we done? Two Olympic champions who upset history, or rather overturn it. Who could have thought that two Azzurri, on the same day, in the same stadium, and at almost the same time, would generate such incredible intensity? Almost the same age: 29 Gianmarco, 27 in September Marcell. Both at their first Olympic final. A performance never seen before for Italy in athletics, the most universal sport.
