    record achievement. Blue Elias Awani He improves the Italian marathon record with 2h07:16 Barcelona. Three years later, Eyob Faniel’s clock at 2h07:19 in Seville, also in Spain, on February 23, 2020 was reduced by three seconds. Three minutes every thousand metres. In the end, Fiamme Azzurre, despite a slight drop, regains his position and reaches his own goal. It was the third time in his career over 42.195 km for the engineer, who graduated in the United States, and has been living and training in Ferrara for the past two years under Massimo Magnani. Last season he became the all-time best Italian rookie in the marathon with 2h08:34 in Milan, then at the European Championships in Munich he finished 19th with a time of 2hrs 15min:34 conditioned by cramps, while he rose to prominence in 2021 with Unprecedented poker titles of two Italians (cross, 10,000m on the track, 10km on the road and half marathon). This year, after the compulsory abandonment of the European Cross Country Championships due to Covid last December, he’s down to 1h01:49 in the mid-February half marathon in Verona, on the way to preparing for the exploits.

    With this exciting result, Aouani also signs up to the world athletics standard for the Paris Olympics (2h08:10) as well as for the World Championships next August in Budapest (2h09:40). On the Catalan roads, he managed to close in record time despite an unexpected event, with his foot bleeding from kilometer 35 due to a blister on his right toe. And he left his doubts behind last night after finishing fourth last weekend at the Italian Cross Country Championships where he was in the Societari athletics competing for Cassone Noceto, his home club. Here are the steps: 14:52 (5km), 29:50 (10km), 44:53 (15km), 59:59 (20km), 1h03:16 (half marathon), 1h14:44 (25km) ), 1h29:56 (30km, part 22nd place), 1h45:13 (35km), 2h00:29 (40km). Blue is the third among the Europeans to cross the finish line, in the race won by Kenyan Marius Kimutai in 2h05:06 ahead of Moroccan Othman El Ghamri (2h05:12) and Turkish Kaan Kigen Ozbilen (2h05:37) sixth place instead of Swiss Tadesse Abraham ( 2h06:43).

    “my ransom” – “It’s a result worth twice as much for me,” comments the new Italian marathon record holder Elias Aouani, “and not just for the time trial, but for the moment in which I arrived. Last week was very heavy for me, after the disappointment last Sunday of not being able to race as well.” I had hoped in the Italian Cross Championships, and their management put me to the test. So I set out with a little low expectations, but I put aside negative thoughts.” What does this record represent? “The redemption of many disappointments: also for the marathon at the European Championships in Munich, which did not go well, and not participating in the European Cross Country Championships.”

    “a knot you don’t like” – “At the finish line it’s hard to process all the emotions you feel. I had a liberating reaction, because of the doubts of the past few days, as if a knot had suddenly loosened and gave me so much relief. I ran alone the last 10km, trying to ignore the feeling With discomfort in my right foot due to blisters, and mentally the aim was to overtake the athletes who had broken away on a fast but not too fast course, with slight but persistent slopes, I. Particularly with the uphill finish.”

    “I still have margins” – “It’s good to reap the fruits of your work, it gives me a lot of confidence. It wouldn’t have been possible without Massimo Magnani, my coach, Mauro Crivellini who helps me train, physiotherapist Massimo Tuccio and manager Marcello Magnani. There is a sense of satisfaction, but there is also an awareness that There is still room for improvement and I want to beat it. A record that can be beaten soon, maybe in a couple of weeks.” The marathon that will be held on April 2 in Milan is indicated, where European 10,000-meter champion Yeman Kripa will participate for the first time. “So I’m thinking of enjoying this record as much as possible.”
