The words of Gianmarco Tamberi

Bad news for Gianmarco Tamberi who had to give up the Szekesfehervar Meeting, a stage of the World Continental Tour (gold level, the second most important international touring circuit), due to an infortinio that just didn’t take in view of the Olympics.

"Reluctantly I have to report that I had to drop out of today’s race due to a pain felt in my hamstring during warm-up. I hope it’s nothing serious but the truth; è that 30 days before the Olympics even a crooked hair è serious!", she posted on Instagram.

"This thing is wearing down my soul, I have managed to do practically only one race this year and my life dream è practically arrived!“, added the Tokyo champion, also a triumphant in Rome at the recent European Championships.

"Unfortunately, I think it will be at risk also the Diamond League in Monte Carlo on July 12, in 3 days I doubt that it will be all right. I really have no words. I hope with all my heart that he will beò able to return to the platform soon to continue pursuing what I have been working for every single day for 3 years now", he concluded.
