Veterans Dominate Arena Grand Prix 1 in Florence

FLORENCE, Italy, November 14. FOREIGN swimmers won six of the 12 events contested today, the first of two days of competition at the Arena Grand Prix 1, held in a short course (25 meter) pool in Florence.

Strangely, foreign swimmers took five of the six women's events, while the Italian men were five-for-six in their events.

Veterans Claudia Poll (Costa Rica), Mette Jacobsen (Denmark), Iryna Amshennikova (Ukraine), Mirna Jukic (Austria) and Therese Alshammar (Sweden) all came away from their sojourn to Florence with victories.
Alessia Filippi, who won a decisive victory in the 400 IM, was the only Italian woman to record a victory.

On the men's side, Italy's Emiliano Brembilla, Cesare Pizzirani, Alessandro Terrin, Filippo Magnini and Luca Martin all earned gold. Ukraine's Denys Sylantyev, who took the 100 fly, was the only non-Italian man to win.
