Doha World Championships: Lorenzo Zazzeri wins individual Olympic pass in the 50m freestyle


Italy secures an individual Olympic qualification on the penultimate night of the World Swimming Championships.

The credit for this achievement goes to Lorenzo Zazzeri, who, at the Aspire Dome in Doha (Qatar), managed to match the qualifying time of 21.8 seconds in the first semi-final of the 50 freestyle event.

The time, which was enough to secure his ticket to the 2024 Summer Games in Paris, was not enough to qualify for the last act. The Florentine (photo Giorgio Scala, Giorgio Perottino, Andrea Staccioli, Andrea Masini/DBM), in fact, finished ninth overall, placing him just outside the finalists.
