Biography

Angelo Tonini was mainly a footballer and applied himself to athletics only in the 1912 Olympic year. He was the first Italian to reach 7.00 metres in long jump, which he achieved in the city of Valenza sul Po on 26 May 1912. This result was a national record for 13 years until 13 April 1925 when Virgilio Tommasi jumped 7.17 m. At the Olympics Tonini developed food poisoning, which kept him out of the high jump, while he finished 13th in the long jump.

Personal Best: LJ – 7.00 (1912).
