Italy won the first medal at the current World Swimming Championships in South Korea, in Gwangjiu with the chosen corporal Rachele Bruni, athlete of the Olympic Army Sports Center, already Olympic silver in Rio 2016, which celebrates the bronze in the 10 km in open water.
A really important medal that also applies as an individual pass for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Rachele Bruni is at her seventh participation in a World Cup and, in a career of great competitive satisfaction, she never managed to win an individual world medal.
Finally a bronze arrives to be kept next to its Rio 2016 Olympic silver. It was a very tactical race, in which Rachele remained in the top positions for almost the entire race, managing to get the better of the rest of the opponents thanks to a test of strength and resistance that allowed her to close third.
"Medal I have been chasing for a long time". "I sweated to the end, I gave everything I had. I am very happy. Finally I have the world medal that I missed, I had been pursuing it for a long time. In Tokyo I want to play it to the end and the goal will be the Olympic gold" - happily commented the athlete of the Army trained by the chief corporal Fabrizio Antonelli, Army and national coach.
