Tokyo 2021 Olympics, all Italy’s gold medal cards and stars – OA Sport

by archysport

It is now just over a month to Tokyo Olympics 2021. Italy continuously enters the top 10 of the medal table from Atlanta 1996. In the last three editions (Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016) it has never dropped from the same number of golds: 8. A booty that, in our opinion, this time would not be enough to remain in the planetary elite. In all likelihood, it will be necessary to reach and exceed double figures in terms of victories, as has not happened to the Bel Paese since Athens 2004. It will not be an easy undertaking: from the predictions of OA Sport it appears that Italy will win 9 medals overall gold and 36 total podiums.

Let’s find out which will be the blues who will be able to assault the big target in Japan. The number of stars will indicate the real ambitions of each Italian. The athletes not mentioned, in our opinion, are not among the eligible candidates for a gold.



5 stars: Italy’s main cards for gold.
4 stars: in the second row, but still eligible for a victory.
3 stars: outsider with the potential to blow the bank.
2 stars: possible surprise.
1 star: gold unthinkable on the eve, but not impossible regardless.
