(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 19 – Second day of competitions at the World Swimming Championships in Budapest, and final of the 1500 style won for Simona Quadarella. The blue champion qualifies with the second time of 15’56 “19, behind the dominatrix Katie Ledecky (15’47” 02) who books her seventeenth world gold. Six blues advance in the semifinal: the runners Arianna Castiglioni and Benedetta Pilato in the 100, the backstrokes Margherita Panziera and Silvia Scalia in the 100, Marco De Tullio in the 200 freestyle and in the 100 backstroke Thomas Ceccon, expected from the final of the 50 butterfly (same time as the American Caeleb Dressel both in heats and in the semifinals with the double Italian record).

“The sensations are very good, we had set out with Christian (the coach Minotti, ed) to swim a time of around 16 minutes. I liked both the pace and the change of pace. The Australians were dangerous, but I managed to take them off at 1200 meters without working too hard – Quadarella’s words -. In Gwangju I was at the top; here I feel good and I have many good memories. Compared to five years ago, when I won the bronze, I carry with me a lot of certainty and a greater awareness of my means Katie Ledecky is a very strong opponent My goal is not her, but my competition.

This year is a difficult season, full of commitments. We are trying to calibrate our preparation to always be competitive: the European Championship at home will be incredible, I can’t wait. “

Waiting for the finals scheduled in the afternoon: spotlight on the 100 breaststroke with Nicolò Martinenghi, Olympic bronze, qualified with the best time. (HANDLE).
