Last winter RAI decided to shoot during training and qualifications for Rio 2016  the Italian basketball team. It has been defeated at the pre-Olympic Finals to Croatia and in this way disappeared the chance to participate to the Games. There are flashbacks about past basketball games like i.e., the Final match at the Olympic Games in Athens 2004 where Italy won the silver medal against Argentina. Later, the camera is focused on the Italian woman Volleyball team, remembering  touching moments of the team during past Games. Last but not the least there is Giovanni Peliello – 2nd place at Rio – who won the silver medal at skeet shooting.
