Super 'Gimbo' Tamberi flies into Olympus! Historic gold in the high jump


Gold!!! Gianmarco Tamberi writes a memorable page for Italian athletics at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. He is the first Italian Olympic medal in the men's high jump, and it is gold (the only one who had succeeded before was Sara Simeoni, Moscow 1980). Gimbo' achieved this feat in Tokyo 2020. The Italian strongly wanted these Olympic Games after the injury that denied him Rio 2016. The Italian was ex equo with the Qatari Essa Mutaz Barshim at 2.37. Also on the podium was Belarusian Maksim Nedasekau at 2.37, but with more errors. Gimbo is on the roof of the world.
