Olympic special / Spotlight on Italy / Day 6

August 3, 2012

Day 6 started and ended as well as anyone could have hoped with Team Italy taking one gold and one silver medal, making the total number of medals so far- 11.

The women’s fencing team proved they’re absolutely untouchable by claiming another gold in the women’s team foil event, in front of the Russians and Koreans. Once again, Le Azzurrine become heroines of their team.

The boys weren’t too far behind, especially the rowers, Alessio Santori and Romano Battisti, taking the silver medal after chasing down the experienced Slovenian pair Luka Spik and Iztok Cop, who came in third, and losing only to the amazing Kiwis. A most exciting rowing finals in the men’s double sculls, I hope you didn’t miss it.

The athletics competition starts today, and I’ll keep my eyes and ears open for any new records and medals for the Italian team. Go Italy!

What about you? Who is your favorite in the Games?
