For Larissa Iapichino third success in the Diamond League after Florence and Stockholm with the personal best outdoors. There is less than a month left for the World Cup in Budapest
Larissa Iapichino flies further and further away and above all he learned to do it at the right time. In the Montecarlo stadium, the Tuscans won their third match of the season in the Diamond League (after Florence and Stockholm) with the outdoor record of 6.95pulling out the perfect measure twice: on the 5th jump to enter the final, on the 6th to overcome the five "septembers" in the competition.
«Beautiful moment that I try to enjoy to the fullest – explained Larissa, for the first time without dad/coach Gianni by my side — and living it with peace of mind. The World Cup is a month away, there are no favorites in the long run and I want to get there in the best possible way». In other races, monstrous world record of the mile of Kenyan Faith Kipyegon (already holder of the records of 1500 and 5000) who with 4'07"64 lowered the old limit by 5" while in a very fast men's 5,000 meters (in 4 under 12'45", demolished European record for the Spanish Katir with 12"45"01),
Yeman Crippa has retired: the European champion of 10,000 is in troubleto. In the 400 hurdles of the Martian Warholm (46”51), a worrying injury for Alessandro Sibilio.
From Montecarlo to Grosseto, where speed coach Di Mulo organized a 4x100 to guarantee qualification in Budapest. With Rigali in place of Patta in the first fraction, Tortu in second, Patta in third and Ceccarelli in fourth, the Azzurri, for the first time in this formation, hit the target with 38”04, third time ever after Tokyo heats and finals. Chills after the second substitution due to a fall by Tortu which, in his words, made his shoulder "out" but should resolve itself quickly. Desalu probably won't return to Hungary while Jacobs, who won't compete until the 100m heats, shouldn't compete in the 4x100m.
