Simona Quadarella reached the final of the 800 freestyle at the World Swimming Championships in Budapest and tomorrow she will be able to look for that medal that she missed in the 1,500, where she finished fifth. The blue stopped the clock at 8’27 “96 (seventh time) which guaranteed her qualification without excessive effort.
“In the 800 I am looking for confirmation despite knowing that I am not as brilliant as usual – said the Roman, author of the 400-800-1500 treble both in Glasgow 2018 and in Budapest in 2021 – I am not used to metabolizing defeats, but like in Tokyo I have this second chance and I will try to take it.

In the semifinal the four butterfly players: Piero Codia and Federico Burdisso in the 100, Silvia Di Pietro and Elena Di Liddo in the 50; well Lorenzo Zazzeri who passed in the 50 freestyle, while Luca Dotto stopped. Finally a good time trial, passage and a lot of confidence for Margherita Panziera in the 200 backstroke. Eliminated the 4×200 freestyle relay, out of the top eight for eighteen cents.
