Marco Orsi

Isl, fifth match always in short course at the Scandone in Naples. In the race the Los Angeles Current, third with 6 points behind the holders of the Condors drops by Dressel and the Energy Standards of Pilato, the Toronto Titans of Razzetti and Zazzeri at 7, the Iron Budapest of Marco Orsi and the DC Trident at 2. Three teams fighting to qualify and are direct rivals of the Aqua Centurions (competing on Saturday and Sunday) for one of the 8 places in the November semi-finals in Eindhoven. The fight will be open until the end of September.

On the first day we always start with 100 butterfly: the Swedish from Toronto touches the ISL record of the American Dahlia by 4 cents, reaching 55 ″ 26. Tom Shields, born in 1991, in the race for Los Angeles tames the 100 male dolphins in 48 ″ 78, exactly one second more than Dressel’s world record. Lisa Bratton is American and competes for Toronto: she beats the Canadian Masse in progression in 2’01 ″ 66 after a 59 ″ 73 in the middle, and the Canaian of Los Angeles Ingrid Wilm 2’02 ″ 82. More than the passport, as in this case, it is worth belonging to the team competing for the Isl Champions of swimming. Jacob Pebley touches in the men’s 200 backstroke in 1’50 ″ 73, with the Romanian Glinta of the Iron under the podium for 1o cents.

In the 200 breaststroke of the Russian Temnikova, Sara Franceschi climbs the all-time Italian rankings with a fifth place from 2’22 “41: she was 18th in 2’24” 59 now the Livorno-born Los Angeles coached by dad Stefano is eighth. Swede Erik Persson beats 29 year old Cody Miller in 2’04 ″ 24 in the mashile test by 30 cents. Marco Orsi in the 50sl touches with regret in fourth place in 21 “46, 8 cents behind Iron’s companion, De Boer, and after leading up to the last strokes, when those of Ryan Hoffer n 21” 25 emerged. A time trial absolutely within the reach of the Bolognese bomber, already vice world champion, and with a staff of 20 “68. Curiously, the Bolognese will close with another two fourth places in the relays and with fractions launched from 46 “76 and 47” 42.

If you look at the time, Alberto Razzetti is not satisfied having swam the 200 medley in 1’54 “26, he who had 1’53” 95 on the opening day of the third edition on August 26, and at most he did better than the previous solo show. 1’54 ″ 58 with which he started the Isl. Even if he looks at the position – fifth – he certainly isn’t. It happens. The success of the Greek Vazaios in 1’52 ″ 30. In the 50 backstroke, Silvia Scalia reaches sixth in 26 “76: she boasts the Italian record of 26” 22. Canadian record for baby Summer McIntosh in the 400 sl: 3’5878. Finally Lorenzo Mora in 51 ″ 75 launches one of the two mixed relays of the iron Budapest (the other saw the team with Orsi still under the podium).

Toronto closes the first day in the lead, Los Angeles is third: tomorrow we repeat.
