The deputy technical director for the youth sector Antonio Andreozzi announced the squad for the European Under 23 Championships in Tallinn, Estonia, scheduled from Thursday 8 to Sunday 11 July: Giovanna Selva will also be there
A very large, qualified team, full of young people who have already stood out at an absolute level and in the international field: 82 athletes have been selected, including 43 men and 39 women.
Among the latter, the name of Giovanna Selva stands out for the VCO, talent of the Sport Project VCO who will represent the blue colors in the 10,000 meters together with Gaia Colli and Anna Arnaudo, fresh Italian absolute champion in the 5,000 meters.
This is the second presence in the national team of the pupil of Severino Bernardini, in the past a great athlete and today an equally appreciated technician, after the world title in junior mountain running teams. Unfortunately, an injury prevented her from being at the start in the European Cup in Birmingham at the beginning of June, an appointment that would have been her debut “among the greats”, and from fighting for a medal to the recent Italians.
Once again our small province carves out a supranational role thanks to a serious and determined girl, who manages to combine sporting commitment with school (Giovanna studies medicine in Varese) and to whom a big good luck goes from FIDAL VCO.
