Filippo Randazzo has returned beyond eight metres two years after the last time beyond the ever iconic barrier of long jump. The blue was the protagonist of a beautiful leap from 8.06 metres (1.9 m/s tailwind) in Palermo, stopping at just six centimeters from its staff dated 16 July 2020 in Savona. The Sicilian, eighth at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, grabbed the minimum for the European Championships in Rome right at the last available opportunity, given that the time limit for snatching the ticket expired today.

The 27-year-old has had a jolt after a couple of very complicated seasons: it hasn’t landed this far since 2021, i.e. from the qualifications of the Games closed with 8.10 (0.3 m/s of breeze behind). Carmelo Giarrizzo’s student will therefore be able to be the protagonist during the continental event which will be staged in the capital from 7 to 12 June and he will join one of the great stars of the entire Italian movement, namely Mattia Furlaniundoubtedly one of the big favorites for medals in the eternal city.

The 19-year-old from Lazio flew 8.36 meters outdoors in Savona (under 20 world record) and in the winter he won the silver medal at the Indoor World Championships. At the moment the blue holds the best seasonal outdoor world performance, on par with the Greek Miltiadis Tentoglou. Randazzo is currently the second Italian of the year and the hope is that he can improve further, perhaps even returning to the running for a presence at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
