Gianmarco Tamberi is coached by his father, Marco Tamberi, who held the indoor Italian record in 1983 with the measure of 2.28 m.
In 2015, Tamberi broke the Italian high jump record twice—first with a jump of 2.34 m in Cologne, and second with a 2.37 m in Eberstadt, where he was second behind Derek Drouin. He later finished 8th at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing with a clearance of 2.25 m.
During winter 2016, Tamberi won every contest he participated at. He won in Banska Bystrica with 2.35 m, a new Italian indoor record, equalled by Marco Fassinotti in the same event. He won in Trinec after clearing 2.33 m. At the 2016 High Jump Moravia Tour, he recorded a jump of 2.38 m, enough to beat Chris Baker of Great Britain and Kyriakos Ioannou of Cyprus, and which gave him the Italian indoor high jump record. He won a gold medal at the World Indoor Championships in Portland in March 2016 with a jump of 2.36 m.
Tamberi was unable to compete at the Olympic Games due to an injury earlier in the season.
At major competitions, he is known for sporting a full beard during qualification and shaving half of it for the final.
