The infrastructure of the base is impressive: excellent conditions for training, a spacious and bright dining room, always ready to receive athletes and coaches and treat them to divine Italian pasta.World-class stars such as Giulia Imperio, Nino Pizzolato, Giulia Miserendino, Sergio Massidda will come to your attention.
They will become the main characters not only on the weightlifting platform, but also in the relaxed atmosphere of fun Italian dinners with delicious pizza, and of course in the emotions of real Italian shopping.
Cheerful laughter, loud music – in the car, in the lifting gym and at home, create a unique feeling of the spirit of Italy.
The Italian national team is more than just a sports team, it is a family where 20 athletes, 7 adults and 13 youth and juniors, create a mosaic of true championships and a brilliant future. Mutual support, experience and friendship are what makes this team real.
Athletes lift twice a day, Monday through Friday, and once on the weekend, with a rigorous schedule and high intensity. Each training day begins with junior sessions, followed by the adult team.
The soul of the team is head coach Sebastiano Corbu, who combines inspiration, wisdom and strategic skill, being able to be strict, but also supportive, instilling faith in success in each athlete.
The national team is proud of its coaching staff, which includes not only massage- and rehabilitation therapists, but also physical training coaches who work individually with each athlete.
But Sebastiano Corbu, as the brain, guides every step of his athletes, guiding them to victories in the international arena.
We are going to publish few interviews with Italian Oly stars as well some training secrets, upcoming plans and many more!
