Doha World Championships: Italy's women's 4x200 freestyle relay team punches its ticket to Paris 2024


Another morning of heats has concluded at the Aspire Dome in Doha, Qatar, the venue for the World Swimming Championships.

The most relevant news concerns the women's 4x200 freestyle relay team, which managed to win one of the Olympic passes reserved for the 13 best nations not yet qualified.

Sofia Morini, Giulia Ramatelli, Emma Virginia Menicucci, and Giulia D'Innocenzo (photo Giorgio Scala, Giorgio Perottino, Andrea Staccioli, Andrea Masini / DBM) concluded their event with an overall time of 8:00.19, earning them tenth place in the heat, but falling short of qualifying for the final session in the afternoon.

However, when combined with the time of 8:00.13 recorded by Morini and Menicucci alongside Costanza Cocconcelli and Sara Franceschi in the previous world championship edition in Fukuoka, it proved sufficient to secure Italy a national spot for the upcoming Summer Games in Paris.
