World Cup: only Michele Lamberti in the final. Rivolta and Razzetti are back, Castiglioni second disqualification

The Italy of the World Championships in short course in the morning also starts again at full speed thanks to the award-winning company Miressi, Zazzeri, Frigo and the new entry Deplano. The first half of the 4×50 sl heats prefigures another medal (our expedition with 2 gold from the butterfly, Razzetti & Rivolta, is already at 8)

From our correspondent Stefano Arcobelli

The great attraction of the two brothers fades in the final, the same evening (from 15 Italian, live Rai Sport). Two brothers, Matteo and Michele, who bear a heavy surname: Lamberti, former world champion in the 200 sl in Perth 1991 in the 200 sl. Matteo should have swum in the 4×200, Michele in the 50 backstroke of which he is a European medalist. But in the relay the coach excluded Matteo due to the internal selection, who will therefore not compete in the final. But in case of a medal, having competed in the battery, he will be awarded anyway. Therefore, only Michele remains to be admired. The Italy of the Abu Dhabi World Championships in a short course, in the morning also restarts at full speed thanks to the award-winning company Miressi, Zazzeri, Frigo and the new entry Leonardo Deplano. The first half of the 4×50 sl heats prefigures another medal (our expedition with 2 gold from the butterfly, Razzetti & Rivolta, is already at 8).

Pass azzurri

Silvia Scalia is eighth in the heats of the 50 backstrokes in 26 “50: the Lombard who has just moved to Verona from Matteo Giunta, has an Italian record set at the European Championships in Kazan of 26” 18, time trial from which to restart in a specialty that sees the Canadian Macneil already unleashed and the only one under 26 “in the morning. Under the sign of the dolphin, these World Championships continue with the sixth time in battery in the 50 from 22 “53, he who boasts the Italian record of 22” 14, which is also aimed at Thomas Ceccon, 13th in 22 “82 and in a race that sees the world record holder Nicholas Santos, from Brazil, still covered while in the lead is Dylan Carte from Trinidad and Tobago in 22 ”36. Michael Andrew does not start, already rejected in the 50 sl: the American who made talk at the Games being no vax (meanwhile, the queues for tampons increase here) does not seem to have restarted under the right moon. And the US is starting to worry.

Disqualification bis

In the 400 sl pink, Simona Quadarella returns, who tries to enter a problematic final but collects only the tenth time: the last useful pass was at 4’03 “58, the Roman touches in 4’03” 93 (59 “97 , 2’01 “73, 3’02” 86), fourth in his battery, with some regret even though he gave everything and was not at the top of his 3’59 “75. Compared to Li Bignjie and Kirpichnikova, who dominate the heats, he pays for too many turns for which, as Christian Minotti’s student herself says, there is “a lot of work”. Nowadays in super specialized swimming, little can be invented: for Simona this is the third race, in which she can stand out in Europe. The important thing for the world champion of 1500 and Olympic bronze of 800, is to always seize the moment like yesterday in the 800 with a fabulous bronze of heart on the day of 23 years. Siobhan Haughey goes to the final, aiming for a sensational 100-200-400 treble. Martina Caramignoli also comes out, fourteenth in 4’06 “89. Two individual races and two disqualification: the strange record of Arianna Castiglioni, who had obtained the seventh time (1’05 “18/30” 78) in the 100 breaststroke heats and found herself out due to the intervention of the lane judge who reported the so-called “gambata a dolphin” of which the Varese girl in ’97 allegedly stained herself (Benedetta Pilato in Tokyo was also a victim). Arianna comes out in tears and bewilderment: “I could have accepted the one in the 50s, but not this one, then they should disqualify eighty percent of the runners”. The fatal moment is that of the touch when the swimmers stretch and if they are not synchronized they are tempted by the last kick of the legs. In short, a jattura for the financier. So only Martina Carraro remains in contention, 11a in 1’05 “61 (30” 74). In the lead is the Swedish Sophie Hansson in 1’04 ”51.

Relay race

Finally, the 4×200 marks the second half after the USA and ahead of Brazil, with the USA only seventh: in the final the cards will be reshuffled, but in the meantime for Italy a clear signal: in the first fraction the world champion Alberto Razzetti is back who swam in 1’43 “01, then it’s up to Better 1’43” 44, De Tullio 1’45 “06 and Michele Lamberti 1’45” 01.
