‘Best Moment of Tokyo 2020’: Reaction to Shared Olympics Gold

Tokyo 2020 Olympics has been the topic of the internet recently. Italy’s Gianmarco Tamberi and Mutaz Barshim of Qatar agreed to share a gold medal at the Tokyo Games in a competition settled not by clearing the top height but with a subtle nod. I can’t even imagine the joy they experienced when they had that gold medal around their neck. All the hard work, the sacrifice paid off in the best way possible. And this was not just a personal win, they’re representing a whole country that had its eyes on them in that moment of competition.

It would be far from the last celebration the two athletes, who have been good friends since 2017, would have. “For me, coming here, I know for a fact that for the performance I did, I deserve that gold,” Barshim said. “He did the same thing, so I know he deserved that gold. This is beyond sport. This is the message we deliver to the young generation.” Both high jumpers were perfect until the bar was set to the Olympic-record height of 2.39m (seven feet, 10 inches). Each missed three times. The rest is history.

So, as we all know, there are a lot of things these athletes go through in order to achieve that shape and get qualified for the Olympics. Therefore, today we are bringing some of that footage that often goes unseen. Thus, scroll down below to check out the images. And let us know what you think of this year’s Olympic games!
