Riccione Open Championships: Leonardo Deplano scores a hat-trick and also stamps his ticket to Paris in the 100 freestyle


Leonardo Deplano also qualified for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris in the 100 freestyle.

Thanks to the time of 48"09 (limit 48"2) registered in the heats on Thursday, 7 March, and not improved upon by other swimmers during the Spring Open Championships in Riccione, the Florentine (Photo Giorgio Scala and Andrea Masini/DBM) was certain to occupy the second place available for the Parisian competitions along with Alessandro Miressi, silver medallist at the last World Championships in Doha.

For Deplano, this is his third Olympic pass after the two obtained in recent days in the 50 and the 4x100 freestyle.
