Nespoli in the World Cup final “In Mexico to win”

The blue of archery is getting ready at the “Giulio Onesti” center in Rome. ROME (ITALPRESS) – For the award-winning Mauro Nespoli the path to new glory passes through Rome. At the “Giulio Onesti” Olympic Training Center, the blue archer has started preparing for the Archery World Cup finals which will take place on 15 and 16 October in Tlaxcala, Mexico. The Tokyo individual silver – a success that has enriched an already extraordinary Olympic palmares with the team gold in London 2012 and the team silver in Beijing 2008 – has centered the sixth participation in the World Cup finals after Paris 2013, Rome 2017, Samsun 2018, Moscow 2019 and Yankton 2021. The best result in the tournament is that of three years ago in Russia, where he finished second behind the American Brady Ellison, who will not be there this time. “I am very happy to be still in the World Cup finals, even if this was a year of transition after the five-year Olympic period, it is the right reward for the work done. I will go to Mexico to win” Nespoli’s words at Italpress. In the recurvo, he will face the Koreans Woojin Kim and Je Deok Kim, with the Turkish Gazoz, the Mexican Flores, the American Ellison, the Brazilian D’Almeida and the Spanish Alvarino Garcia. In fact, it is a grand gala attended by the 8 best in the world, qualified for the great final event thanks to the placements obtained in the 4 seasonal stages of the World Cup (Antalya, Gwangju, Paris and Medellín). In Rome, together with Nespoli, five other archers of the Olympic Arch met: the five-circle bi-champion Marco Galiazzo (Aeronautica Militare), Alessandro Paoli (Fiamme Azzurre), Tatiana Andreoli (Fiamme Oro), Vanessa Landi (Aeronautica Militare) and the bronze of Tokyo Lucilla Boari (Fiamme Oro), led by technicians Matteo Bisiani and Amedeo Tonelli. They will remain in retreat until October 7, alternating between training camp, gym and technical meetings. Nespoli has won a lot over the course of his career, yet he continues to be hungry. Despite the silver he won last summer in Japan, the 35-year-old from Voghera spoke of a “bittersweet Olympic experience” because he was “lived on the edge of nervousness”. After all, you can always grow. And he is the first not to be satisfied: “I have treasured all the arrows shot in view of Paris 2024”. The French Olympics is in fact the great goal to raise the bar even more. The archery season has really come into its own. After the meeting at the end of September at the Federal Technical Center in Cantalupa (To) and the 3D Italian Championships, the “field” World Championships began in Yankton, in the United States, on 3 October. Also in the archery specialty known in our country as “country shooting” the blue colors are destined to excel: in last year’s continental review the Italians conquered the top of the medal table with 26 medals, against 11 in Sweden, second. – photo Italpress – (ITALPRESS). spf / gm / red 04-Oct-22 15:25
