It was a heavy card, the one that San Marino could play in the wrestling competition. On the other hand we are talking about Myles Nazem Amine, an athlete who had already gone to the podium both at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, where he had captured the bronze, and at the European Championships last March, where he was the winner. And in Oran, Algeria, the scene of this 19th edition of the Mediterranean Games, Amine gave a very pleasant encore, putting all opponents in a row in the freestyle category at the limit of 86 kg. For the titans it is the first gold, for Myles the confirmation – yet another – of belonging to the world elite of wrestling. But there is more. Yes, because the Amine family gave another joy – this most unexpected – to the ancient republic of freedom, with Malik Michael Amine (pictured left with his brother) who went to sit on the third step of the podium in the freestyle band – 74 kg. A bronze place, that of My’s older brother, a medal that at a certain point seemed far away, in the final for third place against the blue Masotti he found himself under 1-4. Without ever letting go, however, Malik went upstream and nailed his opponent right in the final stages of the fight (6-4 the score in his favor).
This happened before the final for the title of Myles, which saw him opposed to the Turkish Erdin. Determination – as his habit – was at the top and at the right time, after some phases characterized by balance, uncertainty, Amine the difference, finishing victorious under the vaults of the Palais de Sport in Oran (6-1 the partial) . And once in front of microphones and notebooks, the first thought of Myles, who on the eve had promised everyone this affirmation on Algerian soil, was precisely for Malik. Yesterday, in the bowls, three more medals for the Titans. In the individual female Stella Paoletti lost the final for the bronze against the Italian Morelli, while Enrico Dall’Olmo won over the French Roualt and was third. In the late afternoon the doubles finals, a ‘dual match’ between San Marino and Italy that ended in a draw. Dall’Olmo and Frisoni lost from Visconti-Di Nicola (7-10 the score) and silver, while Ciucci-Paoletti (photo on the right) managed to prevail 12-3 in the were solli-Meccani giving the second gold to San Marino Algerian review .
