Another Italian triumph at the European swimming championships a Budapest. Two more arrive from the Duna arena gold medals for the blue Benedetta Pilato is Margherita Panziera. The first won gold in the 50 frog (Saturday had set the world record in the same category), while the second has confirmed the title won three years ago a Glasgow in 200 back.
“I’m going home satisfied – said Pilate – I was expecting it a little but it is still mine first medal in a European. I didn’t expect to do less than yesterday, but five cents is very good. I’m going home in two days, I miss my dog so much. I’m satisfied of my performance, but I would have liked to do better in the 100 ″.
Same emotions for the Panziera, at the second medal individual of the competition, who won the 200 backstroke by scoring the championship record. “I’m really happy with the weather – said the girl to Rai Sport’s microphones – I didn’t expect it. It means i am working well, I managed such a tough week well. I’m only sorry the way I approached the race, I relied on my opponents and I didn’t like that. I have to work on this aspect ”.
The two young swimmers, however, were not the only ones satisfactions European for the blue team. Alberto Razzetti has conquered silver in 400 mixed, behind the 17-year-old Russian Ilya Borodin. “It’s absurd, I don’t know what to say – Razzetti told reporters – It’s incredible. I’m very happy, I did not expect it. I’m happy with the management, I was tense before the start but now I’m really happy ”. Great fifth place instead for the other blue Pier Andrea Matteazzi.
