AS Roma’s condolences for Pietro Mennea

This morning, Pietro Mennea, a legend of Italian sports, passed away at the age of 60. The sprinter held the world record in the 200 meters from 1979 to 1996: perhaps his most famous win was his gold-medal performance in the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow. Here at AS Roma we offer our sincerest condolences to the family of Pietro Mennea, the “Freccia del Sud” (Arrow of the South), for their loss.
