“Simply an extraordinary thing. All Italy must now thank these guys and CT Villa “
Ivano Fanini, in his career has launched so many talents and among these there is also Marco Villa, current coach of the Italian national team and manager of the track. With Fanini, Marco Villa has won a world championship, so it is natural that there is a magical emotion on the part of the owner of Amore e Vita, seeing this masterpiece achieved today on the Tokyo track.
“Watching these guys win was sensational – exclaims Ivano Fanini – I can’t find suitable words to describe my satisfaction. The last lap with a super Ganna that made the difference, was kind of goosebumps. Seeing the joy of Marco Villa, who is the one who made all this possible, really fills my heart with joy. With Marco there is a very special affection, full of wonderful memories. With us he won a world championship and starting from there, he then wrote, first as an athlete and then even more as a coach, very important pages in the history of Italian track cycling. I am really proud of him and of this gold medal. Again, it was simply an extraordinary performance. All of Italy now owes homage to these champions and their Coach Villa. In fact, it is thanks to him that Italy has returned to winning gold medals (even at the world championships) and has returned to being a symbolic nation of track cycling. I am also really happy for all the members of this magical squad, with a particular feeling towards Filippo Ganna, who was discovered and trained by my other former athletes such as Florido Barale and Marco Della Vedova. From the Fanini family and Team Amore e Vita the warmest congratulations go to these guys and especially to our Marco Villa for this historic Olympic masterpiece, but I want to say that it is not over yet…. “.
