Doha World Championships, 10 km: Acerenza and Verani deliver two Olympic passes to Italia Team


Italy did not fail to show up in the men's 10 km of marathon swimming.

At the World Championships in Doha, Qatar, Domenico Acerenza (photo Federnuoto) swam an excellent race without ever losing contact with the leading group and eventually finished in seventh place with a time of 1:48:30.40.

Also doing well was the other Italian athlete in the race, Dario Verani, who, thanks to a splendid second half of the race, finished right behind his national teammate, in eighth place with a time of 1:48:30.80.

Their respective final positions guarantee an Olympic pass apiece (nation place) for the Italia Team for Paris 2024. That means two more Olympic quota spots in addition to the one won in the women's race by Arianna Bridi.
