Giovanni Malagò has no illusions and issues a warning
“In a few years it will be impossible to do these results that we are achieving now.”
Reduced by the triumphant Tokyo 2020 expedition, then repeated by the excellent results in the Paralympics, and the recent great result at the World Swimming Championships in Budapest, CONI President Giovanni Malagò goes against the tide. Instead of riding the wave of sporting successes of the Italian colors in all the rainbow kermesses and beyond, the executive looks to the future. Launching a warning for the years to come.
“I say this frankly: in a few years it will be impossible to do these results that we are achieving now,” Malagò told ‘Repubblica’. “The sports system works despite a number of complications and obstacles, but we cannot draw as human material only from sports schools. In schools sport is done badly and little; it is a drama. In Budapest we witnessed an extraordinary success, which we have never had before, and then I want to remember that from the Mediterranean Games all the greats of Italian sport and beyond have passed through,” he concluded.
