I want to thank my good friend Simone Proietti for these fantastic photos from the Rieti 2012 Meeting. Simone also contributed to the photos from the 2012 World Junior Championships in Barcelona last July.
Simone is a reporter and photographer for several newspapers including lacorsa.it and atleticanet.it.
You can read my update here including the bizarre 400 meter lane violation that went unnoticed by offcials!
You will recognize several of the athletes in the photos… especially Ivet Lalova and her fiancée Simone Collio from Italy.
