Filippo Tortu stops: explanation via social
The Italian just won bronze in the 200 meters at the European Championships
For this year, no more. Tortu has decided that his season is over after his efforts at the European Championships (where he won the bronze medal in the 200 meters). The Italian feels the time has come to rest.
“I decided to end here this long and challenging season. A season that I close with a big smile because of the satisfaction I took away on a personal level. It has been a challenging year where I have expended a lot of energy, both physical and mental. My mind would tell me to continue because I am still very charged up, but my body is pushing in a completely different direction and a good athlete has to know how to recognize these signals even though he or she still has so much desire to compete. Now I will be able to spend some time with my family and enjoy the vacations with friends to unplug and resume with the right charge ahead of next season. I want to once again thank my entire team for the constant support I receive on a daily basis that allows me to be in top form at the times that matter most,” his words via social media.
