“I am very well. Everything is going well, according to the program we have drawn up”. These are the words of Vincenzo Nibali at Adnkronos. The blue champion arrived in Tokyo today with the cycling team accompanied by coach Davide Cassani. The Sicilian champion has recovered from physical problems and is ready and energized to face the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. “The goal? It is all still to be fielded, but we are energized, we will all try to give our best and as a team to achieve a medal. It will not be very simple, but the goal is that. I think it is normal, and that it applies to all national teams “, added Nibali.
“For me it is not the first Olympics so the emotion is a little different but there is always that attention for an event of such great importance”, underlines the blue champion, not at all worried about the absence of an audience. “Armored Olympics? Unfortunately, yes. In our sport we have experienced this absence of public for a long time. Even at the Beijing Olympics, however, I remember that, being in a very touristy area, the road test was closed. We are now used to it, we will do the maximum”.
“The boys are all very well, it will certainly be an atypical competition but we are going to Tokyo to do well and fight to the end”, explained the Italian coach Davide Cassani to Adnkronos. “Now we will go to train at about 1000 meters and then arrive in Tokyo the day before the race. At the moment there are no defections among the big names, it will be a battle but we are aiming for at least a medal”. (from the correspondent Emanuele Rizzi).
