Pity Luca Pizzini. At least just a touch. And then celebrate his pathway to progress. For on a lifetime best of 2:09.23 for the Italian 200m breaststroke title and a ticket to world titles on the last day of nationals in Riccione today, he finds himself the fourth sharpest from his country with the seventh swiftest time – even though no Italian has ever raced faster in a textile suit. On a day when Gabrielle Detti topped a terrific week with a 1:46.38 lifetime best in the 200m freestyle to topple the sprinters, leave him a fingernail shy of the 1:46.29 Italian record that has stood to Emiliano Brembilla since the last season of shiny suits in 2009 and make it three freestyle solo crowns this week after lifetime-best victories in the 400 and 800m, Pizzini drew the eye.
