Speciality 200 m freestyle, 4 x 200 m freestyle relay


These are the third Olympic Games of his career. In Rio, the objective of the 27 year old from Bergamo will be to overcome the delusion in Beijing, when the Italian freestyle relay team ended up at the foot of the podium for both the 4x100 and the 4x200m. After only brushing close to those medals, his career continued with highs and lows, winning two European medals and another two at the Mediterranean Games, but failing to reach the finals in the most prestigious competitions, i.e. the World Championships and the Olympic Games. However, back in Rome after a spell in Nice, he has regained confidence and strength, and during the 53rd Edition of the Settecolli Trophy, he managed to get his pass to Brazil, notwithstanding a motor accident last November, which had made this achievement very unlikely.
