pass for the Paris Olympics -


Of Marco Bonarrigo

In Krakow, in the pools in front of Auschwitz, the artistic swimming couple wins the mixed artistic swimming technical duo and mortgages the Olympic pass for Paris which will be awarded after Saturday’s test

CRACOW The first blue gold medal of the European Games brought it to Lucrezia Ruggiero and Giorgio Minisini house

in the Mixed Duet Technical of artistic swimming.

In the Oswiecim pool, Lucrezia and Giorgio (242.35 points) outclassed Spain (216.58 points) and Great Britain (203.49). Such a clear success by mortgage the Olympic pass for Paris which will be awarded after the artistic rehearsal of the couple on Saturday afternoon. The mixed competition is not scheduled for the Games but, for the first time in Olympic history, the qualified nations will be able to field men in the pairs and team competitions.

For Giorgio Minisini, whose very tough autobiography has just come out (The male. How to chase dreams without losing yourself: my life in artistic swimming) the European title is a small step towards a new dimension. We Italians win everything – explains Minisini – and everyone asks us what secrets the blue synchro has. We answer that there are no secrets but very demanding coaches who push us to never be satisfied with results. The harmony of the couple with Lucrezia and with the team, the result of a profound dialectical confrontation between us. I have recently lost my father and the mourning process has been a complex process, even in the bath.

Minisini explains that the pools of the Europeans practically overlook Auschwitz and if it is true that we are very concentrated on the competitions every time we look out the windows and see the fields we cannot forget how much pain has accumulated here and how lucky we are to be able to confront opponents who are not and will never be enemies.
