PALTRINIERI Gregorio Golden touch in Rio Olympics 1500m Freestyle swimming

Rio Olympics 1500m Freestyle swimming

Gregorio Paltrinieri is an Italian competitive swimmer. He is the world long course and short course champion and three-times European long course champion in the 1500 m freestyle event at the 2012 and he win a gold in 1500m freestyle swimming in rio 2016 olympics.

After a bitter dispute between the pair surfaced prior to the 400m freestyle, won by Horton in an epic dual, the rematch in the longer race was to be one of the features of a controversial week in Rio, where the spectre of doping clouded the results in the water. But Sun would fall ill between his 200m gold and the 1500m freestyle heats. The drums were beating in China that he was unwell and it proved to be on the money. Swimming in Horton’s heat, he faded badly to finish last and miss the finals.

While a number of Australia’s leading lights were unable to handle the pressure that surrounds the Olympic pool deck, Horton has taken everything in his stride, including the stoush with Sun that spiralled into an international incident.

The much anticipated showdown between Australia’s Mack Horton and his great rival Sun Yang will now not happen after Yang failed to qualify for the men’s 1500 metres freestyle final.

China’s world record holder and defending Olympic 1500m freestyle champion struggled badly and failed to qualify for the finals on Friday night. Yang, who has already won a 200m freestyle gold and 400m silver, was only 16th fastest overall.
