Luca Agamennoni, rower, already the winner of a silver medal in China four years ago. Considering Livorno's rowing traditions, we just have to have a rower at the Olympics! Once told by a prominent figure on the city's rowing scene that he should give up rowing, Luca is about to take part in his second Olympic games! Competing in the "Men's Four" event.
