Vanessa Ferrari is in the final in the free body at the Tokyo Olympics. At thirty, the gymnast from Brescia finished in front of the favorite, the American Simone Biles. This is the fourth consecutive Olympics for Ferrari and the next appointment is on 2 August when she will try to win that medal that was denied her twice: in London and Rio. “I am very happy for the competition. In the free body I did everything I could and wanted. ‘Con te partiro’ ‘(the piece by Bocelli with which she performed, ed.) Is a music that helps me a lot in interpretation of the choreography, I can express myself with my face, where I struggled more with the other melodies. I think I have improved a lot also from the expressive point of view. Now the exercise is complete: the acrobatics are of a high level, the artistic part as well, the choreography is good, with the interpretation we are there, if I had to enter the final I will evaluate what to do differently. I want to play it all the way. After two fourth places, quite wrong, I finish eighth, but I want to try until the end”. The opponent to beat is obviously Biles. In recent days, the two gymnasts have been the protagonists of a ‘case’ on social media that Loe has seen but in solidarity: the blue had been insulted by the fans of the American champion for an unfortunate sentence pronounced years ago by Carlotta Ferlito. Biles intervened in her defense: “Vanessa, I apologize for what you went through” she tweeted, asking fans to stop the attacks.
