I stayed 15 cents from gold at the Mediterranean Games

The swimmer from Udine beaten by the other blue Mora in the 200 backstroke. Mizzau and Laquintana in bronze

UDINE. Matteo Restivo wins silver in the 200 backstroke (1’57 “77) at the Mediterranean Games, behind Lorenzo Mora (1’57.62) and it was precisely this double that allowed the Italia Team to overcome the podiums collected in the medal table in the latest edition of Tarragona 2018.

Yesterday, in addition to Restivo, the codroipese Alice Mizzau and the Pordenone Sonia Laquintana also got on the podium, both bronze in the mixed 4x100m (3’42 “86) behind Slovenia and France. A very good edition for Friuli Venezia Giulia, which also yesterday brought two medals as a dowry.

For Matteo Restivo, who has yet to qualify for the European Championships in Rome in August, the joke came in the last 50. After dominating in the first three pools, in the last he was overtaken by Lorenzo Mora, who first touched with 15 cents of advantage. The Friulian has the continental pass in his sights and will have to arrive ready for the summer absolute in Ostia, scheduled from 19 to 21.

The Mediterranean Games were a useful test of rapprochement. For Alice Mizzau it was the games of revenge, after years on the sly. Also yesterday the swimmer from Beano di Codroipo contributed to the blue medal, together with Sonia Laquintana from Pordenone, and she returns home from Algeria with one goal: to win the European pass in Ostia, as Restivo.

Swimming has made a fundamental contribution to the blue medal table. Italy won gold with Matteo Rivolta in the 100 butterfly (51 “66, new record of the event) in which Edoardo Valsecchi won the bronze (52.53), and the gold of Filippo Megli in the 200 sl (1’47 “33). She got on the second step of the podium, winning the silver medal in the 100 backstroke, Carlotta Zofkova (1’01 ”61). A bronze bears the signature of Antonietta Cesarano, who in the 400sl finished third in 4’10 ”13; bronze also for Alessandro Pinzuti in the 100 breaststroke in 1’00 “31.

Key contribution for the medal table also from fencing. Yesterday Olga Rachele Calissi, born in Livorno in 1992 of the Roma Fencing Club, won the women’s foil test overcoming the French Alice Recher in the 16, then the Spanish Maria Marino in the quarterfinals with priority 15-14 and, in the semifinal, the Turkish Irem Karamete 15-9. The blue who already during the first three minutes of the match had taken over, closing the first fraction 8-6; in the second period she has constantly extended the advantage assault after assault without giving respite to the opponent.

The final saw the blue dominate the French Morgane Patru and settle the score up to 15-7 with which they won the victory. With his medal, Italy had arithmetically conquered the first place in the medal table, with 47 golds, 48 ​​silvers and 59 bronzes ahead of Turkey (44-25-37), when there were four swimming competitions where the Turkish athletes were present only in three .
