"In all sports, when you wear blue, you bring the hopes of a nation, we represent Italy and its determination. This is an immense honour for us, but it also brings pressure. This, too often accentuated, harms the most intimate part of us. I ask that our humanity be recognized." This was said by Gianmarco Tamberi, Italian athletics captain, during the meeting at the Quirinale with the Head of State, Sergio Mattarella.

"The obsessiveness we have for sport does not make us immune or infallible," he added. Many of us, when we are free from judgments that have nothing to do with performance, exceed our limits. But we need your understanding. I would like to humbly ask the media and fans to look at us athletes as ambassadors of values."

Then he concluded: "The results achieved shine in blue and not with proper names. A spirit that has allowed us to achieve goals that years ago we could only dream of. One of them is the European Cup."

"Between motorbikes and tennis last weekend we were constantly changing the channel. The results of Sinner and Bagnaia are the culmination of a season that has shown that Italy is not only alive but is among the elite in many sports." This was said by Gianmarco Tamberi on the sidelines of the meeting at the Quirinale with the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella. "The credit for these successes goes largely to the president of CONI, Giovanni Malagó, who does everything he can to put us in the best possible condition," he concluded.
