World Championships: Italy's 4x100 freestyle female relay team wins a place at the Olympics


The Italian women's 4x100 freestyle relay team has won its ticket to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. At the World Championships in Doha (Qatar), where 13 places are up for grabs for the nations that did not get on the podium last year in Fukuoka (Australia, the United States and China), the heats were enough to make the participation of our athletes at the Olympics in France official.

Sofia Morini, Costanza Cocconcelli, Emma Virginia Menicucci and Chiara Tarantino (photo DBM / DeepBlueMedia - Federnuoto) swam 3'39"20, gaining access to the final with the second fastest time. However, the time set a few months ago at last summer’s World Championships in Fukuoka, a 3'37"93 that earned them ninth place overall and that in the Doha final can in theory only be beaten by three other national teams (Poland, Brazil and Slovenia). So Italy is guaranteed one of the 13 passes guaranteed by the regulations to the national teams that set the best times in Fukuoka 2023 and Doha 2024.
