Gold of the women’s double light weight, bronze of the men’s one in rowing and then the silver of Paltrinieri in the 800 freestyle in the night. Bronze in fencing completes the day. The women’s Italvolley and Settebello win, they disappoint the Azzurri of Trap
The sixth day at the Tokyo Olympics (here the chronological detail) is that of the second gold of the expedition, signed by the girls of the double light weights of rowing, Federica Cesarini and Valentina Rodini. But Gregorio Paltrinieri’s “miraculous” silver in 800 freestyle in precarious physical conditions is also among the night’s exploits. The double bronze of the women’s foil team and again in rowing with Stefano Oppo and Pietro Willy Ruta brings the blue medal table to 19: two gold medals, seven silver and ten bronze.
Conquering the final had been a grind, and it was a pain to see an absolute protagonist of blue swimming like Gregorio Paltrinieri suffer so much from the difficult conditions for mononucleosis that hit him right in the imminence of the Olympics: the gold of the 1500s of Rio dominates the 800 freestyle and only in the final must he surrender to the American Finke. Return to the pool for Federica Pellegrini in the mixed 4x100m which won the final with Sabbioni, Martinenghi and Di Liddo. In the 100 freestyle Miressi (47 “86) falls in the final and finishes sixth in the race won by the American Caeleb Dressel for six cents in 47” 02 over the Australian Kyle Chalmers. Alberto Razzetti (Italian record of 1’57 ”13) was out of the 200 medley final by six cents. The bronze of the 200 butterfly Federico Burdisso is out by 8 cents (51 ”82) from the semifinals of the 100 butterfly. After the disappointing 5th place in the 1500s, Simona Quadarella hit the 800th final with the third time, 8’17 ”32 (Caramignoli out with the 20th time, 8’33” 15). Margherita Panziera in the semifinal of the 200 backstroke with the twelfth time.
Shooting and teams
The standard-bearer Jessica Rossi (119/125) did not qualify for the final of the Trap women, while with 121 targets hit out of 125 Silvana Stanco made it, who finished fifth: gold Rehak Stefecekova, silver to the American Kayle Browning and then the historic bronze to the San Marino of Rimini Alessandra Perilli. In the men’s Trap, instead, Mauro De Filippis went out in the play-off for the last place in the final, after 122/125 in qualifying. Third win out of three, with only one set lost, for the women’s Italian volleyball, a nice 3-0 over Argentina: the blues are already in the quarterfinals after the third knockout of China against Russia. Success also for Settebello, a 12-11 with a thrilling comeback over the United States. In golf, interrupted by lightning, at the end of the first round the blues Guido Migliozzi and Renato Paratore finished in par (71 strokes) in 41st place from Sepp Straka, first with 63 strokes (-8).
