(JULY 5) — Double Olympic sprint champion Lamont Marcell Jacobs, high jumper Gianmarco Tamberi, and walker Massimo Stano headline the Italian team announced to take part at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Oregon next week.

Jacobs, who became the first Italian man to win the Olympic 100m title at the Summer Games in Tokyo last year and also helped his nation to the gold medal in the 4x100m relay, will head to Oregon hoping to replicate those performances when he takes on the very best sprinters in the world at Hayward Field.

Meanwhile, Tamberi, who shared the gold medal with Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar in the men’s high jump in Tokyo, will also aim to add the world championships title to his global medal collection after finishing 8th at the Doha championships in 2019.

The Italian team is made up of 60 athletes, including 29 men and 31 women, and also includes the 35 km walker Olympic champion, Massimo Stano.

The 2022 World Athletics Championships to be held in Eugene, Oregon, will take place from 15-24 July at Hayward Field.
