(R-L) Italy\'s Lamont Marcell Jacobs, South Africa\'s Akani Simbine and USA\'s Fred Kerley compete in the men\'s 100m final during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo on August 1, 2021.

TOKYO, KOMPAS — Italy was back on the medal podium for the men\'s 4x100 meter relay at Tokyo 2020, 73 years since its last medal-winning performance in the event, in London 1948 when the country won bronze. It also grabbed bronze at Los Angeles 1932 and Berlin 1936.

However, Italy turned up at the Tokyo Olympic stadium suddenly like the explosion of Mount Vesuvius by winning the men\'s 4x100 meter relay gold on Friday (6/8/2021).
