The Italian long jumper Mattia Furlani went to the Olympic Stadium last thursday to enjoy the match of As Roma in the Uefa Europa League of football, while waiting to compete at the Roma 2024 European Athletics Championships next June.

Last 2 March Furlan won the silver medal in the long jump at the World Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow and is already projected towards the great international event scheduled in Rome from 7 to 12 June (ticket on sale here).

The young italian star is dreaming to become European Champion in Rome and, in the meantime, he watched the first leg of the Uefa Europa League round of 16 match between his favourite team, As Roma, and the English side Brighton & Hove Albion FC.

“Today I’m here at the stadium supporting my team, As Roma, and I am waiting for the European Athletics Championship in June. I can’t wait to compete and I’ll be waiting for you all at the Olympic Stadium,’ said Furlani addressing the athletics fans.
