Larissa Iapichino in San Vendemiano

Last test before the World Championships in Eugene for long distance runner Larissa Iapichino.

The Italian will compete on Wednesday in the event that will christen the renovated track in San Vendemiano (Treviso), the 2nd International Meeting ATL-Etica – 3rd Memorial Prof. Ivo Merlo. At the Rieti Assoluti, a decade ago, the not-yet-20-year-old Florentine of the Fiamme Gialle proved to be growing in condition by landing at a season-best of 6.64 to win her third consecutive outdoor tricolor.

The world under-20 indoor record holder (6.91 in 2021) returns to the Marca two years after the meeting organized on that occasion in Vittorio Veneto. On the platform she will find Australian Samantha Dale, who improved this season to 6.72, but also Cecilia Naldi (Atl. Virtus Lucca), Carol Zangobbo (Assindustria Sport) and Veronica Crida (Atl. Brescia 1950 Metallurgica San Marco).
