Gold!!! The accomplishment of Valentina Rodini and Federica Cesarini champions in the lightweight double


Gold!!! Valentina Rodini and Federica Cesarini are in the Olympus of rowing! On the waters of the Sea Forest Waterway, the two women pushed the Italian lightweight double ahead of everyone and crossed the finish line in 6:47.54 to win the gold medal ahead of France (+0.14) and Holland (+0.49). It is the first gold in Italian women's rowing history, 21 years after the last gold won (for men) by the quad scull in Sydney 2000.
The third rowing medal is of the most beautiful colour, of the most precious metal, and allows the Italian Team to add its second gold medal in Tokyo 2020 (photo Pagliaricci GMT Sport).
