We all wish Larissa a speedy recovery and to return to jumping as soon as possible and as far as possible, with her beautiful smile.
(Florence 29.06.21) An unfortunate landing in which her right foot gets stuck in the sand during the competition she just won, the Italian championships in Rovereto, forces Larissa Iapichino to stop.
Larissa, her staff, together with the Fiamme Gialle and the Italian Athletics Federation, whom we want to thank for their support in this situation, given the results of the diagnostic tests carried out, reluctantly communicate the impossibility for the young star of Italian athletics to participate in the Tokyo Olympics.
In fact, this caused Larissa to sustain a sprain of the anterior portion of the deltoid ligament, which affects her take-off foot.
In order to safeguard her future, the path that will lead to her complete recovery is undergoing careful evaluation.
A virtual press conference will be scheduled, the details of which will be communicated as soon as possible in agreement with the Fiamme Gialle and the Italian Athletics Federation. Here Larissa Iapichino will speak directly and both she and her coach Gianni Iapichino will interact with those present.
