Three out of three for Gregorio Paltrinieri who dragged the Italian team, vice world champion and made up of Rachele Bruni, Giulia Gabbrielleschi and Domenico Acerenza, to the European gold medal in the team test of cross-country swimming, at Lake Lupa in Hungary. The blue, expected now from 800 and 1,500 freestyle in the pool, follows the successes in the 5 and 10 kilometers obtained in front of all the strongest specialists in the disciplines.

The Azzurri win in 54’09 “ahead of Germany by 9 seconds, and Hungary, third at 9” 5 with two tenths ahead of France. The fastest of all was clearly Paltrinieri who finished his third fraction in 12’53 ”00; Bruni had opened in 13’48 “7, followed by Gabbrielleschi in 14’17” 1; closing of Acerenza in 13’10 ”0. Behind the blue stands out the performance of the German Florian Wellbrock, however, in 12’58 ”6, determining the second place. The world champion of the Olympic distance and of the 1,500 in Gwangju, however crushed by Paltrinieri in this first week, unfortunately will not participate in the pool races.

“It was an incredible race – says Paltrinieri -. Winning with the team has an unparalleled taste. We wanted to win and we succeeded. My first week was exceptional. I leave Lake Lupa with 3 gold medals and important sensations and also significant for the future beyond the Tokyo Olympics. In these days we are talking a lot about the opening of outdoor pools – continues the champion registered for Fiamme Oro and Coopernuoto -. It is a topic that is so dear to us athletes because we believe that they must reopen immediately, in complete safety. It has been closed for 15 months now and it is a stretch. All of us champions started from very small realities. I think that if I had been taken away from my swimming pool as a child I would have gone mad. an important social value to what I do and for two seasons now children have been deprived of something important. Knowing how to swim can be worth their life. I dedicate this medal to them “.

In the evening, on the diving front, the splendid continental silver by Chiara Pellacani, 18, arrived in the three-meter springboard. Gold to the German Tina Punzel. For Chiara it is the fourth medal of the review: gold stands out in the mixed synchro springboard with Matteo Santoro.
