Italy already world record holder in the 4×50 mixed relay from Kazan 2021 with 1’30″14 breaks the wall of 1’30” and rightfully enters the history of rainbow swimming. Exceptional passages of the Azzurri: Lorenzo Mora has the best reaction at the start with 0″42 and launches his teammates in 22″65, Nicolò Martinenghi swims his split in 24″95, Matteo Rivolta increases his lead with 21″60 and Leonardo Deplano defends well against the comeback of the U.S. Michael Andrew and closes with 20″52. United States behind with an American record of 1’42″41 and Australia third with an ocean record of 1’30″81.

Gregorio Paltrinieri returns to the pool and wins team Italy’s fifth gold medal and second personal best in Melboune. The Italian hero dominates the 800 freestyle with 7’29″99 setting the championships record and fuels an extraordinary legend; the 800 freestyle, which has never been held in a short pool and of which he is the reigning European champion but recently lost the continental record to Ireland’s Daniel Wiffen (7’25″96).
