[Autom. eng. transl.] Only one centimeter, yet it is enough to be immortal, beautiful forever. Because the walls are scary, because two meters are really a wall and to fly an inch beyond the wall you have to be special, you have to want it at all costs. Forever we will see her fly beyond a bar that does not know she is an obstacle to history, we will see her smiling with her arms in the air as if to embrace the whole of Italy. It has taken the whole nation one centimeter over two meters: it is timeless primacy and glory. It was August 4, 1978: 2.01 at the first attempt in the friendly camp of Brescia. Born in Rivoli Veronese (Verona) on April 19, 1953, wife of Erminio Azzaro, husband and coach, she is Roberto's mother with whom she completes a family of jumpers all able to overcome two meters. Another record! “It was dancing, but they discarded it because it was too high”. They told her she stood out too far above the others, they couldn't hold her. It was our luck that they let her go. Her parents, who subsidized an athletics company, took her to the field, to do everything, as they used to do. As is still done today when there is a lack of courage and competence to see the talent of a young promise, but with Sara it was a completely different story.
