Sette Colli. Report finals first day

The cover of the first day of 54th edition of Trofeo Sette Colli is for Nicolò Martinenghi who continues to shine, establishing the Italian record (absolute, second division and juniores) in 100m-breaststroke with 59''31. Eleven hundredths less than 59”42 swum by Fabio Scozzoli on 25th July 2011 winning the silver medal in the World Championships in Shangai. The athlete of Marco Pedoja – member of NC Brebbia – passes at 50m in 27”54, following the Olympic, World and European champion Adam Peaty closing the race with 58”72, the record time of the event (the previous time of 59”63 was reached by the Lithuanian Giedrius Titenis in 2016). “I didn’t expect the Italian record – Martinenghi says – the hard training has given its fruits: I broke my limits. The ambient of Stadio del Nuoto gives unique energies”. The 17-years-old swimmer from Varese establishes also the Young World and European record. The eleven finals in programme reserve other red circles. Simona Quadarella wins in 1500m-freestyle with 16'03"55. In the middle of the competition, the success of Federica Pellegrini in 200m-freestyle with 1'56"16 and Gabriele Detti ranks second in 400m-freestyle with 3'45"88.
Quadarella, a Roman doc, wins in 1500m-freestyle with the second Italian time in tissue, and record of the event. The student – who the last days made the Italian and Maths tests at scientific high school – rises the National rankings and she is behind the time of 15'52''84 reached by Alessia Filippi on 16th July 2008, breaking the previous event limit of 16'05''62 reached by the Danish Lotte Friis.
Pure show in 400m-freestyle won by the South Korean Tae-Hwan Park in 3'44"54 (gold medal in Olympic Games in Beijing 2008 and in the World Championships in Melbourne 2007 and Shangai 2011, but then found doping positive). Behind him, the European and bronze medal Olympic champion Gabriele Detti (Esercito/SMGM Team Lombardia), ranking second with 3'45''88, even if he passes first at 200m with 1'52''21. The Italian record holder – trained by the Federal technician and his uncle Stefano Morini at the Federal Centre in Ostia together with Gregorio Paltrinieri – is ahead the Olympic Australian champion Mack Horton with 3'47''58.
Then the proscenium is all for Federica Pellegrini. The athlete ranks first in 200m-freestyle with 1'56''16. The last 50m are difficult for the 28-years-old swimmer from Spinea – trained by Federico Giunta – making up for delay of one second behind the Sweden Michelle Coleman (at the 150m the Sweden passes with 1'26''07, while the Italian swimmer passes with 1'27''07) and then she goes faster the last ten meters.
