There were also Dotto in 48.40 and Pellegrini in 1.56.88, both opening respectively the 4×100 freestyle and 4×200 free.
Federica swam a very good first 100 mt for her standards (56.69). Tomorrow we’ll see if she can go faster in “her” second 100 meters too.

Can relay lead-off times be used for World Champ’s qualification in Italy?

FabIOS

No Danjohnrob, the athlets have to swim the time required during the A final of the individual race 😉

Craig Lord

Grazie Mille, FabiOS.

FabIOS

E’ un piacere Craig 🙂

Why did D’Arrigo pull out of the 400 free final?

FabIOS

@Josh: dysentery. He isn’t in a good shape anyway.
