The IAAF World Indoor Championships are now coming to a close. These three days of challenges have been a never-ending sucession of news and emotions; besides being one of the biggest, it has also seen the presence of a completely new green track. The atmosphere we have seen here is incredible. Lots of fans from all around the world were present in Portland, Oregon, USA to support their idols. Not to mention all the local guys who were here waiting for their countryman and multiple medallist Ashton Eaton.

But the one who distinguished himself from all other athletes has been, without a doubt, Gianmarco Tamberi – an Italian 23-year-old man and national high jump record holder, better known as ‘Half Shave’. Yesterday afternoon there was a high jump final where we watched Tamberi win against his opponents, namely Mutaz Essa Barshim. Gianmarco’s performance didn't start very well because he made some mistakes in his first jumps. He even risked losing his medal at 2.33 metres but, at that point, his eyes changed and his desire to win became stronger... leading him to the gold! In fact, he is the only one to have jumped 2.36 metres at his first attempt.

At the end of the competition, Gianmarco ran to celebrate with his dad Marco and his friend and colleague Alessia Trost, who I hope can show what she's made of today!
