Biography

At the 1964 Olympics, Angelo Damiano paired up with reigning Olympic tandem champion Sergio Bianchetto. They were lucky to proceed through the semi-finals, benefiting from the disqualification of their German opponents. The final was a close affair, beating the Soviets 2-1 after losing the first sprint. Damiano was also a decent individual sprinter, winning the Italian amateur title in 1964. His pro career, started in 1965, was fairly unremarkable, except for the bronze medal he won at the 1967 World Track Championships in the sprint.
