The blue of the double lightweights win thanks to a crazy finish. Silver to France, bronze to Holland
– Tokyo (Japan)
Oroooooo! The first ever medal of blue female rowing shines on the Tokyo sky thanks to Federica Casarini from Varese and Valentina Rodini from Cremona who in the light double perform a masterpiece with a final sprint that took your breath away: France beaten to the last shovelful of only 24 cents, Netherlands third at 27.
what a rush!
A tight race was expected and the predictions were respected: five boats fought each other from the first meter and the gap between the first never exceeded two seconds.
At 1500 meters the blues are third at 1 “39 from Holland and preceded also by France, at 1750 they even seem out of the podium threatened from the outside by Romania, but with an incredible rush in the last 100 meters they strike the competition down with the tip on the finish line. History is made.
