Lights and shadows. Behind the scenes, one of the most anticipated heroes retreated: Gregorio Paltrinieri He lost everything, from medal access to the 1500m freestyle world record that he snatched Florian Willbrook. The German was in control of the race but was not satisfied: on the last lap he stopped the clock at 14’06″88 by no less than 14’08” 06 for Greg, but enough to clear the opponent’s name and stamp it at the bottom of the scoring legend. “It could have been very good or very bad – in the words of Patinieri – but when it came time to increase the pace and push, I was dead”.

From the bitterness of the Paltrinieri for performing below expectations to the humiliation of Martinini. One lost the gold, the other just touched it and saw it slip out from under his nose at a fifty-cent frog. “I made a mistake on the last stroke, I finished too long, and I probably lost the race there,” Blue admits very sincerely. The score in 200 backstrokes was also sweet and bitter for Lorenzo Moura who is trying so hard to see the trophy half-full: fourth place and Italian record but “I have a bitter taste in my mouth”. There is no more faith (Pellegrini), but there is a team.
