Find out everything there is to know about participation of Italy at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics have started. Italy competes for the first time with 384 athletes, as never before in the history of the Olympics, and with Elia Viviani, Jessica Rossi and Paola Egonu as the standard-bearer. After the beautiful and moving inaugural ceremony, with the fight against the pandemic as a common thread, it's time for competitions.
To cheer for our athletes will be very difficult over the next two weeks. In Japan, being 7 hours ahead of Italy, almost all sporting events will be held when it is night in Italy, or at the latest in the morning or early afternoon. But let's discover together the secrets of the azzurra expedition.
The Italian medal table: who can give a medal to Italy
In the last two editions of the Olympics, Italy brought 28 medals to Rome with a selection of just over 290 athletes. This year, the goal is to increase the number of medals won, in particular, the gold ones (7 in the last edition) and with 384 athletes the goal seems to be widely achievable.
The first Italian Tokyo 2020 medals
Italy started on the right foot. The first two medals have already arrived, one gold, the day after the inaugural ceremony. Luigi Samele won the silver medal in the sabre while Vito Dell'Aquila is awarded the gold medal in taekwondo.
An incredible satisfaction for the Italians and we hope to win many more.
