The 26-year-old from the Athletic Club 96 Alperia, won a silver medal at the Italian Championships in the 50 kilometers march, in San Giorgio di Gioiosa Marea, in the province of Messina, after already wearing the Italian shirt in 2018.
Good prediction of the athlet, which managed to improve his performance by almost three minutes with the final time of 3h56’56 “.
” I improved by almost 3 minutes arriving a little more than a minute and a half from the winner – commented from Sicily the Italian vice-champion of the specialty. Meanwhile, there is the convocation for the European Cup of Mars of Alytus, in Lithuania on 19 May.
The sensations were not very good from the start, but I managed to do my best, with a passage at 25 km (half race) in 2 hours with a time trial of 1h56’56 “in the second half of the race. The last 8 km have been very tough, but then when you run 2 50 km in just three months this can happen, you pay on the physical level. Now i’m planning on resting and then I will aim to the Cup “.
The 2019 of Dei Tos therefore started in the best way, with yet another podium performance in an Italian tri-color review.
