The next battle will be a bigger one with more tension in the water but Gregorio Paltrinieri will head to Rio as a man with Olympic gold in his sights and a fine memory of last time out: 14:34.04 via a 7:46.24 at the 800m mark. The time is faster than Grant Hackett’s 2001 stomping standard and second swiftest ever after the 14:31.02 world record of Sun Yang*, the Chinese Olympic champion.
