Marzia Caravelli (born 23 October 1981 in Pordenone) is an Italian hurdler.

Biography[edit]

She was 3rd at the 2011 European Team Championships in Stockholm.[1] Her 100 metres hurdles personal best is 12"85 set in Montgeron on 13 May 2012.[2]

In 2005 Marzia Caravelli made her debut for the Italian national team, but she was a late developer in sporting terms and begun to get good results at international level in 2010 at the age of 29. Despite reaching the semi-finals at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, she has not succeeded in convincing the national federation to allow her to become a member of one of the Italian military sports bodies.[3]
