Caeleb Dressel’s first prestigious signature on the fourth day of the International Swimming League at the Scandone pool in Naples (25 meters). In the 100 butterfly the 5 times American medalist touches in 48 “53 (he has a world championship of 47” 78), burning Tom Shields in progression, fourth is Matteo Rivolta in 50 “30, behind the new record holder of the 100 backstroke Coleman Stewart, who in Naples he was medaled two years ago at the Universiade. Caeleb then returns to the 50 sl for a sprint of 20 “67, he who is the fastest man in the world in 20” 16 even in the short course. Alessandro Miressi climbs on the podium, in 21 ”39 (he has a personal of 21” 18), third: tomorrow will be the real confrontation in the competition between the Turin giant and the American phenomenon. Silvia Di Pietro, world medal winner at Windsor 2016, is also back on the podium for a penny on her teammate, Kameneva.

Good Faith

Federica Pellegrini, who arrived in a great hurry in Naples after a frantic journey from Verona by train, is fifth in the 200 backstrokes won by Beata Nelson: Fede in 2’05 “93 precedes the best Sara Franceschi, author of the twentieth Italian time trial ever (she had 2’09 “, now 2’08” 06). The Livornese is then excellent third in 2’08 ”82 in the 200 medley of the Gorbenko and for the trifle she does not improve the staff. Then Fede is fourth in the fast relay with the Centurions with the fourth 53 ”35 fraction. Among the men, the 200 backstrokes are by Pebley in 1’50 “29, under the podium Matteo Ciampi author of the 6th Italian time trial ever in 1’52” 76. Another blue that gets better. Lilly King takes the 200 breaststroke in 2’17 “66, with the Italian record holder Martina Carraro fifth in 2’21” 27. A podium in the men’s 200 breaststroke with Arno Kamminga third behind the winner Nic Fink and Cope, sixth Tete Martinenghi in 2’05 “59, a time trial that represents the personal for the Olympic bronze of the 100 passed from 2’06” 02 to the second time Italian always in place of Paolo Bossini (the record belongs to Edo Giorgetti in 2’03 ”80). In the 50 breaststroke something beautiful happens in a blue key: Nicolò Martinenghi wins in 25 “74 improving the 25” 86 staff and finds on the virtual podium Fabio Scozzoli, who had not collected a third place (25 “86) since before the injuries and saves the Italian record of 25 ”62. In the 50 pink breaststroke Arianna Castiglioni yields only to super King and improves by 2 tenths to consolidate her personal of 29 ”31 in second place ever in Italy.

Surprise in the fast relay: Caeleb Dressel loses to the touch despite a 45 ”01 fraction. To triumph are the Aqua Centurions with the Brazilian Marcelo Chierighini in front of the touch compared to the American with a fraction of 46 ”49. A relay launched by Alessandro Miressi author of 46 ”29 standing still (Ceccon 47” 15, Grinev 46 ”15). Enthusiasm explodes on the bench of Matteo Giunta’s Centurions. Curious ex aequo in the 400 freestyle between the American Leah Neale and the Australian Madison Wilson in 4’02 “98, third place for Evans who lives in the Bahamas, and fifth for Martina Caramignoli in 4’05” 60. Among the men behind the double of the Los Angeles Current, a precious third place for Matteo Ciampi in 3’42 with Stefano Ballo fifth.

An excellent mixed women’s relay of the Aqua Centurios closes in second place finalized by Federica Pellegrini in freestyle in 52 ”81. Previously, the Russian Mariia Kamevea, the runner Arianna Castiglioni (1’03 “29, faster than King) and the dolphinist Elena Di Liddo (55” 69) had swam backstroke. Lilly King’s Cali Condors win for 56 cents. And in the men’s mixed relay the double podium of the Centurions behind Dressel’s Condors lined up like a dolphin in 48 ”81) is precious to maintain after the first day still the third partial place after the first day.
