Tokyo 2020, the dream of a medal for Rachele Bruni in the 10-kilometer cross-country swim disappears

TOKYO. The dream of a medal for Rachele Bruni in cross-country swimming has vanished. She failed to honor the ten-kilometer Olympic in this challenge that was not just a cross-country race, but one of endurance and adaptation.

Twenty-five swimmers at the start. Brazilian Ana Marcela Cunha won the gold medal, silver medal for the Dutch van Rouwendaal Sharon and bronze for the Australian Kareena Lee. A challenge that proved to be very difficult for Bruni, who reached the finish in fourteenth position at the end of the seven laps from 1400-1500 meters that she had promised to face “with determination and stubbornness down to the last centimeter”.

«I suffered immediately, I tried to stay in the first group, but when they made the final tear I didn’t make it. This result was not expected, I feel anger, I’m really sorry », he comments with his voice broken by tears. «I was calm – adds the Azzurra – but I accused the fast race right from the start, I tried to stay in the group at the bottom so as not to consume energy but I consumed a lot, too many».
