The Danes recovered almost a second in the final 4 laps in which the Verbanese led his
Olympic gold with world record for the blue quartet in the pursuit of track cycling, at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The Azzurri – Simone Consonni, Francesco Lamon, Jonathan Milan and Filippo Ganna – beat Denmark with a time of 3’42 ” 032, improving the record set yesterday, 3’42”307, and surpassing Denmark by only 166 thousandths.
The final of the Verbanese Filippo Ganna against Denmark was stratospheric, leading up to the pass in which he put himself in front of everyone and dragged the blue colors. In tears the technical commissioner Marco Villa: before this Olympics the Italian record was 3’46 ”513, lowered by 4 and a half seconds in the lap of an Olympics.
The victory of the gold in the pursuit on the track “gave me an emotion to cry: phenomenal, that’s all I say”. The Italian cycling coach Davide Cassani, who returned to Italy during the Games, comments on the gold won by Simone Consonni, Filippo Ganna, Francesco Lamon and Jonathan Milan, who have also retouched the world record: “A gold that it’s them and Marco Villa’s. I can only say that I really enjoyed this victory ».
