(ANSA) – BELGRADE, 07 MAR – A problem with the measurement in New York had assigned him and then removed the Italian record of indoor weight at the end of January. This time, however, there are no mistakes: Nick Ponzio, American by birth and training, Italian roots by his great-grandfather of Paceco (Trapani), sends the weight from 7.26 kg to the size of 21.61, two centimeters more than what Leonardo Fabbri did in 2020 in Stockholm (21.59).

Less than two weeks from the Indoor World Championships in Belgrade, on the same platform that will award the world medals, the weightlifter who made his blue debut at the Tokyo Olympics sends a message of solidity to all the other pitchers vying for the podium: it is the sixth in the world of the season and in hindsight only one is unattainable, the American record holder and Olympic gold medalist Ryan Crouser. In the series of the 27-year-old of the Athletic Club 96 Alperia also a 21.45 that reaffirms the state of amazing form. Tonight he signs an eight-centimeter improvement in indoor staff compared to the recent 21.53 in Torun and approaches his outdoor limit of 21.72, centered in 2020 when he did not yet have Italian citizenship. An outdoor staff that he could undermine at the weekend in Leiria, Portugal, where he will compete with the blue jersey in the European Throwing Cup, one week before the Indoor World Cup. (HANDLE).
