Italy comes to dive better than expected World Cup in TokyoJust finished. Until last week, only one Azzurri athlete qualified for the Games, Noemi Patekki Through me World Cup 2019. Well, the national team now has six Olympic cards, given names Kiara Pelakani and Elena Bertucci (To synchronize 3 meters), Giovanni Tucci (3m orchestration), Lorenzo Marsaglia (Conjunction 3 AD and individual 3 AD) e Sarah Goodwin de Maria, The real great revelation that comes from Japan, where it made its debut at a major global event, with notable additional constants and a remarkable fifth place finish in the final from the 10-meter platform.
