World Championships: men's national team soars into the final and secures return to the Games after 12 years


Mission accomplished. At the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships held in Antwerp, Belgium, the Italian men’s national team overcame the qualifiers with the sixth best score, soaring into the finals and securing a pass for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This is a very significant result: the most recent presence of the Azzurri at the Games dates back to the 2012 edition, staged in London. Yumin AbbadiniNicola BartoliniLorenzo Minh CasaliMatteo Levantesi and Mario Macchiati were the protagonists of the day: Italy (photo Simone Ferraro/FGI) scored a total of 248.796 at the end of the six rotations, enough to enter the showdown of the event alongside Japan (258.228), United States (254.628), Great Britain (254.193), Canada (249.260), Germany (248.862) and then Switzerland (248.192) and China (248.163). The final is scheduled for Tuesday 3 October, but as far as the Olympics are concerned, there is no doubt: Italy will be there in Paris 2024.
