Italy was the last nation to nominate its Olympic team

The Italian Gymnastics Federation was the last to name its women’s Olympic team, announcing on Monday – the IOC’s deadline for finalizing team submissions – that Alice D’Amato, Asia D’Amato, Martina Maggio, and Giorgia Villa would be the four set to represent Italy in Tokyo, joining Vanessa Ferrari, who had previously won a nominative berth via the apparatus world cup series.

→ The Italian men finished 13th in qualifications at Worlds 2019 in Stuttgart, missing a team spot by half a point. Both Ludovico Edalli and Marco Lodadio qualified individually, however, with Edalli earning a place in the all-around competition while Lodadio’s performance in the still rings final, where he won the silver medal, sealed his qualification.

The Italians will compete at national championships this weekend, but the results there will not change anything related to the formation of the team, it could answer some questions pertaining to lineups for the four women in both qualifications and team finals.
