02 August 2022

The blue jumps 7.76 in the third round after risking elimination for two voids, gold to the French Konate (8.08). Faggin 10.31 out of the 100th final for two cents. Tebogo (Botswana) to the U20 world record: 9.91

Seventh place in the world, against opponents two years older, in a global context that he is learning to face and that year after year he will get to know better and better. Mattia Furlani bring home the experience of U20 World Cup from Cali, in Colombia, with the seventh place in the final of the long jump at the Pascual Guerrero stadium. The measure of 7.76 (+0.7), centered in the third round of jumps, after risking elimination for the two initial nulls, leaves him fourteen centimeters from the podium, in the race won by the reigning champion, the French Erwan Konate, able to place the decisive jump in the fifth round with 8.08 (+0.4). Cuba and Brazil on the podium: silver to Alejando Parada (7.91 / + 0.1), bronze to Gabriel Luiz Boza (7.90 / + 0.2). Fourth was the American Curtis Williams (7.86 / + 0.8), fifth the Irish Reece Ademola (7.83 / + 0.6), sixth the American who started from seasonal leader Johnny Brackins (7.81 / + 0.6), therefore the seventh place for Furlani, held back by the first two nulls, very good at straightening the final to the third, and then lacking the usual brilliance in the three final jumps, with 7.36, 7.45 and the final null. In the afternoon of today, the morning of Cali, the 17-year-old Rieti European U18 champion had gone to the platform for the qualification of the high jump (ok 2.04, three nulls at 2.08), for the final that awaits him in the Italian evening on Friday, after yesterday grabbing the pass for the long final with 7.85 at the first jump. His World Cup is not over yet but the experience to put in the backpack is already a lot. And at his age, that’s what matters. “Embittered for not having reached a goal that was possible – his post-race comment – many very long null jumps that did not allow me to reach the top, but that’s okay, I had nothing to lose, I arrived here with the goal to give the best of myself as it was a category with bigger opponents. Head to the next ones “.

FAGGIN 10.31 – Only two cents. Moreover, to be honest, disadvantaged by a third semi-final with the headwind, unlike the first two “seeds” with Aeolus on their side. Alessio’s final Faggin in the 100 it fades by only two cents: 10.31 (-0.4) the time trial of the Paduan of Monselice (yesterday splendid 10.25 in battery), 10.29 for the American Laurenz Colbert (+0.6) and the Cuban Reynaldo Espinosa (+0.7), the two recovered . Faggin (eleventh overall time) is tied third in his semifinal, won by Bouwahjgie Nkrumie with the Jamaican U20 record equaled: 10.11 as Yohan Blake in 2007 and Christopher Taylor in 2018. And Bolt? He has no time in the 100 meters as a junior. The author of the best time trial of the intermediate round is even in 2006 (first year students!): 10.09 (+0.7) for the Thai Puripol Boonson, the best world performance under 18. Third time for the very favorite Botswano Letsile Tebogo walking in 10.14 (+0.6). Two hours pass and Tebogo bombards in the final: his 9.91 (+0.8), an under 20 world record improved by three cents compared to Eugene’s 9.94, in itself something sensational, is even more bombastic for how it materializes, that is with the Botswano who turns towards the grandstand to rejoice already twenty meters from the finish. Nkrumie becomes the only owner of the Jamaica record (10.02) and wearing silver, the South African Benjamin Richardson completes the podium with 10.12 (bronze), one thousandth better than Boonson who does not repeat (but slightly) the masterpiece of the semifinal.

800 AND DECATHLON – Martina Canazza eliminated in 800: 2: 11.01, sixth place of its semifinal, twentieth place overall. Alberto Nonino closes the decathlon in fifteenth position with the second career performance (7054): in the last two tests he throws the javelin at 42.12 and completes the 1500 in 4: 47.23. Gold to the Dutch Gabriel Emmanuel (7860).

THE OTHER FINALS – South African Miné confirms the world title in Nairobi 2021 De Klerk with 17.17 in weight, as well as the Serbian Adriana Vilagos in the javelin with a super 63.52. Two golds for the United States: the weight rewards Tarik O’Hagan (20,73), the 4×400 mixed relay is resolved with the success of Use (3: 17.69) at the end of a long head-to-head with India (3: 17.76).
