Belgrade World Championships, Rambaldi and Sartori fly into the final: Olympic card for the Italian pair


Another Olympic card for Italy on the final day of the semi-finals at the World Rowing Championships.

In Belgrade, Luca Rambaldi and Matteo Sartori did not let the opportunity slip away.

The Azzurri finished second in the first doubles semi-final with a time of 6:23.94, the third best overall time. Better than them were the Netherlands (6:19.31), winner of the first semi-final, and Croatia (6:23.02), who finished first in the other semi-final.

Eleven national places for Paris 2024 are up for grabs in the specialty, meaning that by merely getting into the final, Rambaldi and Sartori (photo Federcanottaggio), would guarantee the Italian boat qualification for next year’s Olympics.
