The first Olympic cards won by Italian rowing.

At the World Championships in Belgrade, Stefano Oppo and Gabriel Soares (photo Federcanottaggio) finished runners-up in the second semi-final of the lightweight double sculls, securing a place in the final and, consequently, a nation spot for Paris 2024.

Then the mission accomplished by the Azzurri quadruple sculls: Giacomo Gentili, Luca Chiumento, Andrea Panizza, and Nicolò Carucci (photo Federcanottaggio) also finished second in the day’s second semi-final thus booking their place for the World Championship finals as well as the Olympics.

However the two crews’ final race ends up going, there is no doubt about what will happen next summer: both boats will be at the Olympic Games.
