An unforgettable day for Italian sport. All of Italy rejoices: “We can’t write, we’re crying”, “Nobody ever like you”
Crazy, heroic, simply exceptional. The made in Italy feat of Marcell Jacobs in the 100m and Gianmarco Tamberi in the high jump in the most important showcase, that of Tokyo, represents one of the highest moments in the history of Italian athletics. Since 2004, there was no success at the Games in athletics, but the blue joy could not return in a more grandiose way. Enough to literally drive fans on social media crazy, causing people’s passion for the Olympics to explode once again.
“We can’t write, we’re crying.” “Nobody like you ever”. “What have you done”. In scrolling the contents on social networks in the moments immediately following the Tokyo companies, you can not read anything else. There is no space, however, it does not want to be there: the passion for sport can only be the master now. Every story on Instagram, every post on Twitter of every Italian today brings a common thread, that of Italian gold at the Olympics.
Because the story that the Tamberi-Jacobs tandem made on this Sunday in August also passes through the shouts of the people, literally mad at the embrace of the two after Marcell’s race. “The fastest man in the world is Italian”, we read on social media. It cannot be otherwise due to the whirlwind of emotions that colored this unforgettable Sunday: going from being the first Italian to participate in the most important game of the Games to winning it is an undertaking for a few, perhaps only for him.
Not to mention Tamberi’s ransom. Exciting and exciting, after the serious injury five years ago, at the Rio games. The “golden leap” of Civitanova has given us proof today that in life we can always get up again, even in the face of the most critical adversities. From the abyss in Brazil to the Japanese paradise, a success that has few equals. Because writing the history of athletics and sport in this way cannot lead to other emotions.
August 1 – 3:46 pm
