Great performance by Yeman Crippa in Rovereto in the 1500 meters: the 23 year old from the Fiamme Oro crumbles his personal best with a time of 3: 35.26 becoming the fourth ever blue on the distance. It is a time trial that has been missing for an Italian since 1996. Better than him, in the history of the specialty, only the record holder Gennaro Di Napoli (3: 32.78), Stefano Mei (3: 34.57) and Davide Tirelli (3: 34.61). Instead, Alessandro Lambruschini (3: 35.27) and the 2008 Olympic finalist Christian Obrist (3: 35.32) are overtaken.
It is the result that illuminates the evening of the Madonna delle Neve Meeting, in its Trentino region. And it should be read especially in perspective 5000 and 10,000.
