Italy’s record-breaking

Best short-tub world championship in history. Italnuoto wins the same number of medals as the Abu Dhabi 2021 edition (16), with one more silver medal (5 – 6 – 5), totals 28 finals appearances, improves 2 world records, 4 European, 8 Italian and 19 personal bests. Gregorio Paltrinieri becomes the first swimmer to win the 1500 twice and signs the first 800-1500 double; Thomas Ceccon wins the first individual gold at the rainbow event; Sara Franceschi and Simone Cerasuolo climb the world podium for the first time; six relay teams medal with gold and world records for both the men’s 4×100 freestyle and 4×50 mixed and European records for the men’s 4×50 mixed and 4×100 mixed. Italnuoto is confirmed in quality and density in the top three of the medal table behind the United States and Australia.

Following are Italy’s medal standings, final placings and personal bests of the Azzurri at the 16th edition of the World Short Course Swimming Championships, held at the Melbourne Sport and Aquatic Centre.
