The seasonal outdoor debut of Gianmarco Tamberi, Olympic champion in Tokyo in the high jump did not go well.
'Gimbo' in fact went out in the Doha meeting race, failing the three attempts at 2.24.
So he finished in seventh place.
The test is still ongoing.
Filippo Tortu (Fiamme Gialle) finished in seventh place, running in 20 "41, in the 200 meters race of the Diamond League meeting in Doha, won by the American Noah Lyles in 19" 72, ahead of compatriot Fred Kerley (19 "75).
