The 2022 Italian Spring Championships will conclude today with some of Italy’s biggest swim stars in their premiere events.

World Record holder Benedetta Pilato posted the #1 time in the world this year in the heats of the women’s 50 breaststroke, just 0.28 off her World Record mark. Simona Quadarella cruised into the top seed in the women’s 400 freestyle and is the heavy favorite–both Quadarella and Pilato are already World Championships-qualified in other events.

The men’s 400 IM and 50 breaststroke could offer new berths to the Italian worlds team, though the heavy favorite in the men’s 50 breast, Nicolo Martinenghi, is already qualified in the 100 breaststroke. Margherita Panziera will also look to punch her ticket to Budapest, though she’ll need a big swim near her Italian Record in the 200 backstroke to officially make the cut.

IM and butterfly superstar Alberto Razzetti, who has yet to qualify for the World Championships team, is the second seed in the 400 IM going into tonight’s final behind Pier Andrea Matteazzi. Razzetti is perhaps Italy’s best male IM’er since the days of Luca Marin and Alessio Boggiatto.
