Biography[edit] Early life[edit] Mennea, who was born in Barletta, started his long international athletic career in 1968 when he took part in a junior race in Termoli and he was registered in AVIS Barletta
Barletta
club;[2] in 1971, he won the first of his 14 Italian outdoor titles in the 100 and 200 m. He went on to win two indoor titles in 60 m and 400 m, along with five Mediterranean Games
Mediterranean Games
gold medals in 100 m
100 m
and 200 m. He competed at the European Championships with a third place in the 4 × 100 m
100 m
relay. He made his Olympic debut at the 1972 Summer Olympics
Summer Olympics
in Munich, where he made the final of the 200 m, his strongest event. He finished in third place, behind Valeri Borzov
Valeri Borzov
and Larry Black. Three more consecutive Olympic 200 metre finals would follow later in his career, the longest roe ever in this event. At the 1974 European Championships, Mennea claimed the 200 m
200 m
gold in front of his home crowd in Rome, while also placing second behind Borzov in the 100 m
100 m
and the 4 × 100 m. After some poor performances in the 1976 Olympic season, Mennea decided to skip the Olympics, but when the Italian public protested Mennea went to Montreal. He finished fourth in the 200 m
200 m
and sixth in the 4 × 100 m
100 m
relay.[3] In 1977 he finished second in the world cup 200, where a photo finish separated him from Clancy Edwards of the United States. He successfully defended his European 200 m
200 m
title in 1978 but displayed his capabilities in the 100 metres
100 metres
by also winning that event in Prague. 200 metres

world record[edit] In 1979, Mennea placed first in the 100 metres
100 metres
and second in the 200 m behind Allan Wells of Great Britain in the European Cup. Later in the year, aged 27, he took part in the World University Games, which were held on the high-altitude track of Mexico City. On 12 September 1979, he won the 200 metres
200 metres
with a time of 19.72.[4] His time set a new world record, beating Tommie Smith's time of 19.83 set on the same track in the 1968 Summer Olympics.[4] The record held for almost seventeen years before Michael Johnson broke it at the 1996 U.S. Olympic Trials.[4] To date, only nine athletes have recorded a better time over 200 metres
200 metres
than Mennea. His time stands as the current European record. He also held the low-altitude world record, 19.96, from 1980 to 1983, set in his home town of Barletta.[3] On 17 August 1980, Mennea became the first sprinter to break 20 seconds for the 200 metres for the third time. Olympic champion[edit] Entering the 1980 Summer Olympics
Summer Olympics
in Moscow, Mennea was a clear favourite for the Olympic gold, in part because of the United States boycott of the Moscow
Moscow
Olympics. In the 200 metre final, Mennea faced reigning champion Don Quarrie
Don Quarrie
and 100 metre champion Allan Wells. Mennea drew the outer most lane with Wells in lane 7 to his inside. Wells got out to a blistering fast start and closed on Mennea within the first 50 m. They approached the straight with Wells more than a two-metre lead on Mennea with Quarrie in second and Silvio Leonard, hampered by his lane 1 draw, in fourth. However, in the straight Mennea gained ground and passed Quarrie and Leonard and at the very end of the race, just beating Wells, winning the gold by a mere 0.02 seconds. Later in the games, he was the anchor man on the Italian bronze medal winning 4 × 400 relay team. He also competed in the 100 metres, reaching the semi-finals.[3][5] Last years[edit] In 1983, in Cassino, he clocked a manual 14.8 seconds in 150 metres, a world best time that he held until it was bettered by Usain Bolt
Usain Bolt
in Manchester
Manchester
in 2009. Mennea, known in Italy
Italy
as the Freccia del Sud ("Arrow of the South", from the trains of the same name connecting Sicily to Milan), then announced his retirement, allowing himself more time for his studies. However, he came back from retirement soon and won a bronze medal in the 200 m at the inaugural World Championships in Helsinki. A year later, he competed in his fourth consecutive Olympic 200 m final, becoming the first person to do so. The defending champion finished in seventh, and retired from athletics for a second time afterwards. Again, Mennea made a comeback, and competed in his fifth Olympics in Seoul, where he was the flag bearer, but did not make it through the heats of the 200 m. Mennea admitted that he had used human growth hormone once during the last year of his career. In an interview to an Italian newspaper in 1987 he told that in 1984, during the Summer Olympics
Summer Olympics
in Los Angeles, an American physiotherapist proposed a doping treatment to him. Back in Italy
Italy
he tried two injections of human growth hormone but the crisis of conscience he got was so important that it induced him to retire from activity: "I realized that in my life I was looking for everything, except for that."[6] Although the usage of the substance is banned in modern-day competition, it was not banned at the time by the IAAF.[7] After athletics[edit] After his athletic career, Mennea worked as a lawyer and a sports agent.[4] He was a member of the European Parliament
European Parliament
from 1999 to 2004 elected on the list of The Democrats, but failed in his attempt to be re-elected. He also lobbied for independent doping testing.[8] Death[edit] Mennea died on 21 March 2013, in a Rome
Rome
hospital after a long battle with cancer.[4][9][10][11] He was sixty years old.[4] On the day of his death, the Italian Railways announced that the new superfast train Frecciarossa ETR 1000, entering service in 2014, will carry his name.[12] Olympic results[edit] 200 metres[edit]
