After the silence of these weeks, finally an answer arrives, even if it is interlocutory, and it is that of the number one of Italian sport John Malago: ” The Sarzilla case? The bitterness of an individual is legitimate, but I do not make any judgments – explains the Coni residents on the sidelines of the presentation of the protocol on sustainability between Coni and Mase – The appeal will be judged by the members of the guarantee board which is not from Coni but is at Coni, who are third parties who will have to make their assessments and so on”. A new episode therefore on the story of the Italian triathlon call-ups for the Paris Games which saw the exclusion of the athlete from Dds-7Mp Michael Sarzilla. A small earthquake that contributed to the resignation of six federal councilors and that saw the Italian triathlete also write an open letter to the presidents of Fitri, Coni, and the Minister of Sport Andrea Abodi and to the Head of State Sergio Mattarella “I assure you, however – Malagò added – that there are at least twenty federations where there are athletes, perhaps not in such a striking way, who have considered that some choices were perhaps subjective and not objective”. The appeal to the Sports Guarantee Board against the Italian Federation Triathlon had been made official with a note from the same college which will now have to take charge of examining requests and documentation in the‘hearing scheduled for Thursday 11 July to obtain a decision before the start of the Olympic Games. The appeal was also notified to the two Italian athletes summoned, Gianluca Pozzatti And Alessio Crociani. Sarzilla has asked the Guarantee Board to acquire the minutes of the Federal Council meeting of June 6, 2024, as well as the audio-video recording of the meeting and the analysis of the technical data that would have determined his exclusion and asks “in acceptance of this appeal to reform and annul the federal decision regarding the Olympic convocations, to admit him among the Italian athletes called up for the Paris Games 2024”. There will therefore be a new episode on the convocations and this time it should be the definitive one. At least we hope,
