It is a party for Italy at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo after the triumph in the men's 4x100 relay, 'Magic Nights' started from the loudspeakers, while the Italian athletes present in the stands sang 'Volare'.

JACOBS: "What can I say, the best thing is that before entering, we said our goodbyes and decided to win this gold medal".

"We looked each other in the eyes and believed in it. The gold medal, who would have expected it, we did a great job. It was a really long journey that brought us this far, now we are on the roof of the world. Thanks to the Italians who supported us so much. Yesterday a gold, today another, tonight another one. When I go back to my room I'll try to start crying, it was something truly incredible for Italy ".

DESALU: "For being the second time that I have run around corners in a relay, I found myself quite well. We are a good group, we worked hard, the thing that made the difference is the great group that unites us".

TORTU: "It is the most beautiful emotion that you can imagine and dream of. It is difficult to talk about me and not about us, because four of us run the relay. When I left I saw that the Brit was there, at my side. At that moment I just thought about being relaxed and running as calmly as possible because I knew I could catch him and overtake him. "

"I was more lucid while I was running than when I crossed the finish line. I couldn't believe it could be true, I immediately asked if we had really won and that was it. When I saw 'Italia' on the board I didn't even look at the time, which is 'stratospheric, but I didn't care ".

PATTA: "It's my first Olympics, I think it went well. I'm very happy, in seventh heaven even if it doesn't seem like it. I still don't believe it, I thank the three of them for this great gift".

An already memorable Olympics, which becomes legendary for the blue colors. With Antonella Palmisano's gold in the 20 km walk, that of karate (kumite specialty 75 kg) with Luigi Busà and finally also with that of the men's 4x100 relay with Patta, Jacbos, Desalu and Tortu, Italy rises to altitude 38 podiums overall and exceeds the absolute record, which had been reached in Los Angeles 1932 and in Rome 1960. The chills go by: 10 golds, 10 silvers, 18 bronzes. Coni expected a mission of 30 medals, with the hope of crossing this psychological threshold as well. It went beyond the imaginable.
