The athlete from Vicenza, in fact, achieved many successes in his racing career, such as his victory in Boston in 1990. In Seoul he wrote an important page in the history of sports in Italy, becoming the only non-African athlete to establish himself, in that 'Olympiad, in the disciplines of running.
