Marcell Jacobs And Filippo Tortu . First Italian Olympic champion in the 100m and the first blue to break through the 10 “wall in the queen discipline of athletics. Men from history books, predestined. Marcell approaches sport with football, swimming and basketball. After starting with running – in the myth of Pietro Mennea – focuses on the long jump, but in 2017 an injury to the hamstring of the left leg forces him to stop, convincing him to focus on pure speed. Filippo – grew up watching the businesses of Livio Berruti – he meets the track in 2006, at the age of 8, when he starts racing in the Polisportiva Besanese, a historic company from Brianza. For him, good skills also in other sports, as told in the past to the Gazzetta by his father Salvino, his coach: “He was an excellent basketball player but also a good footballer, swimmer and skier”.
