On Sunday, September 5, the two blue athletes, champions of the 20 km Olympic distance, will compete in an unusual distance of 2,000 meters in the 34th edition of the international meeting.
The first names are among the big names that will compete in the 34th edition of International meeting “City of Padua”. At the Colbachini Stadium, on the afternoon of Sunday 5 September, he is expected to be the Olympic champion for the 20 km. Among the men Massimo stano (Fiam Oro), who dominated the games, continuing the great blue tradition of the major. Female Antonella Palmisano (Fiamme Gialle) in turn is a stunning racing champion in Japan to eventually triumph in Sapporo, the first Italian woman in heels and aiming to conquer gold in five circuits. Both Polynesian infantrymen will test themselves at an extraordinary distance of 2,000 metres.
Contraindicated they made Italy dream. But one of the US 4×400 gold medalists in Tokyo will also be on stage: it’s Michael Norman, the second athlete in history, after Wade van Niekerk, to fall in 100 under 10 seconds, in 200 under 20 seconds and in 400 under 44 seconds. And confirmation of his selectivity is the fact that he will not compete in the 400 but in the 100, where he boasts an exceptional best of 9.86.
While waiting for the other names to be formalized, Assindustria Sport, the event’s organizing company, predicts that in the starting blocks there will be 7 athletes who in their careers have managed to break the 10-second wall in the 100 metres. Several stars are expected to take part in an event that returns after the forced outage of 2020, offering the public 14 races. In the meantime, early this afternoon, ticket reservations for attendees at the event will open.
