Alessandro Miressi eighth in the 100 sl. Gold to David Popovici by a whisker – OA Sport

Nothing to do for Alessandro Miressi in the Final of the 100 freestyle of the 2022 World Championships in lane swimming. The blue had to settle foreighth place in the Duna Arena of Budapest (Hungary), very far from its best times and obviously not in condition. The feedback from 48.31 he emphasized everything that did not go in this world championship did not go.

The Piedmontese pass was right at 50 meters at 22.82 meters, but then in the second pool the light literally went out. A little propulsive action that of “Mirex” who had to bow to others with times that, in an optimal form, could have been his even with a certain ease. Today, however, there is a second 50 meters of 25.49 to condemn him.

The gold went to the very young, born in 2004, David Popovici. The Romanian suffered more than expected, having impressed during the heats and semi-finals. It is no coincidence that in this final act a time of four tenths slower has come (47.58).

A heart-pounding success since the French Maxime Grousset (47.64) touched the big target, having to settle for silver, while for the Canadian Joshua Liendo Edwards (47.71) a bronze arrived. If you look at these times and at the Italian record of 47.45, the regret grows.
