2021 was an unforgettable year for Italian sport
We will not forget the 40 total medals at the Tokyo Olympics (only 5 in athletics), the 69 medals at the Paralympics and the European Football Championship. But it’s also been a great year for men’s tennis and women’s figure skating
If in 2021 Italy regains its splendor and resumes positive talk about it all over the world, we owe all this largely to the world of sports.
From the Prada Cup won by Luna Rossa in New Zealand to the gold medal in artistic gymnastics by Nicola Bartolini, back in Japan after the blue feats at the Olympics a few months ago, a year-long world tour that has often seen the amazing blue colors are champions. A string of remarkable victories, some unforgettable, some unexpected.
Above all, he won the Olympic gold medals for Marco Tampere and Marcel Jacobs, almost simultaneously on August 1 in Tokyo and the astonishing men’s 4x100m race that had never before achieved such a feat and still the European Football Championship won by the national team, will remain In history by Mancini after the disappointment of not participating in the World Cup in Russia.
But when we start scrolling through the images of the many victories one by one, we also realize how difficult it is to put a rating through them.
We certainly cannot forget the emotions and example that the Italian successes at the Tokyo Paralympics gave us. Total 69 medals, second best result ever after Rome 1960.
Also an unexpected year for the victories of Matteo Berrettini and Yannick Sener in tennis, who are now in the top ten in the world rankings and also for women’s skating thanks to the recent repeated victories of Sofia Goggia.
