The 16-year-old completes an almost perfect contest with four wins and only one loss in the quarterfinals against a strong Roman athlete. Very good test also for Angelo Caputo who, just fifteen years old, climbs onto the tatami without fear: in the first match he immediately beats one of the favorite competitors for the final victory, in the second match instead, against another super favorite, he stretches too much and stretches, but nevertheless continues to fight a very good meeting, but his race ends here. The judoka is certainly on the right path, if he continues like this in the next few years we will hear about him. Race a little so for Luigi Pappalardoalso fifteen, who however starts off intimidated and cannot show his enormous talent, but time is all on his side.
