World Swimming Championships the program for Wednesday 26 July and where to see them -

Of Arianna Ravelli, sent to Fukuoka

The Italians in the race: Paltrinieri in the final in the 800m, Martinenghi in the 50m breaststroke, closes the 4x100m medley relay. Miressi and Frigo in the batteries of the 100 style (with Popovici)

the day of the final of the 800 of Gregorio Paltrinieri: What will Greg come up with? The heats were the fastest I've ever swum, with that time you usually entered first, now I'm seventh. This will allow him to start from lane 1: a year ago, in the 1500s, it was a strategy, which proved to be successful because the opponents did not see him fighting each other. This time it wasn't a choice, but we'll see if we can take advantage of it. The Australian Short will be the man to beat, but the competition is fierce: however, eliminated in the heat, the German Wellbrock, winner of the 5 and 10 km and fierce for the 1500m (the German media say he is ready to beat the Chinese Sun Yang's record), is not there.

The other hope of a medal for the Azzurri is linked to Tete Martinenghi

, who after the silver in the 100m breaststroke, will try to throw himself in the 50m: the opponent to beat is always the Chinese Qin, who has improved a lot in one year. Italy will then try in the medley medley relay, or rather men and women, who engage in the four styles. Off with the batteries and the semifinals of the queen race, the 100 style: Alessandro Miressi and Manuel Frigo they try (already silver in the 4x100 relay with Ceccon and Zazzeri), even if the gold seems destined to the Romanian phenomenon David Popovici (his interview HERE). Setterosa, after the feat with the USA, in the semifinal against Holland: in the water at 10 Italian time.
