The high jump Olympian Gianmarco Tamberi finished second in the high jump competition of the Birmingham meeting, valid for the Diamond League.
Tamberi surpassed the measure of 2.25 and finished behind the Canadian Django Lovett, who won with 2.28.
"There is still a lot of work to do - Tamberi's words -. I can't say I'm satisfied but it certainly went better than in Doha, where there was an unworthy debut (he missed 2.20 ed). Today a little better yes is seen, but I struggle when you need the paw, still having technical confusion. From next Saturday, in Trieste, it's time to start climbing above 2.30. These are all training sessions in view of the World Cup: if I lose here, it does not mean that I will lose Eugene. What counts is winning when you wear the national team jersey ".
The 100-meter race was not spectacular, in which the American Trayvon Bromell and the British Zharnel Hughes were disqualified for false starts.
In the end the Canadian Aaron Brown won with 10 "13 in front of the former Jamaican champion Yohan Blake (10" 18).
Only fourth the Olympic champion of the 200, and bronze of the 100, the other Canadian Andre De Grasse.
Ninth place in the 800 meters for the pin up Gaia Sabbatini, who runs in 2: 01.38 in the race dominated by the Olympic silver, the British Keely Hodgkinson.
The blue influencer, on his outdoor debut, travels to the final positions of the group and then tries to make his way into the first lane to recover positions on the final straight, but remains closed: "I missed the position", she admits.
