Good luck to the Italian National athletes. Our “Azzurri” will race with the following numbers: Alessandro Fabian 46, Davide Uccellari 47, Charlitte Bonin 36 and Annamaria Mazzetti 37.

 

However a special wish goes to “our” Hungarian. The PPR’s athlete Gabor Faldum will compete with the race number 26, and we will all cheer him. The race will start in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro on the 18th of August at 4 p.m. Italian time. The swim race course is a one lap of 1.5k, an 8 lap bike course of 40k and a 4 lap run of 10k.

 

In the Olympic Games of Rio we will cheer both nations and we’ll hope that Mameli will not take it in a bad way:

this edition of the Games we will be more than light blue…

In our hearts there will always be white, red and green…

We’ll keep high the National Hungarian flag!
