Gregorio Paltrinieri Tops Meet Record in 1500 Free at Worlds – Video

DOHA – Italy’s Gregorio Paltrinieri turned in a meet-record time to capture the men’s 1500 free at the FINA World Short Course Championships. Watch Race Video

Paltrinieri won the finale by more than two seconds with a 14:16.10 for the win. That’s the best time in the world by 10 seconds, ahead of Jordan Harrison’s 14:26.21 from the Australian Championships, and also bettered Yury Prilukov’s meet record of 14:22.98 set in Manchester in 2008.

Paltrinieri still has some time to drop to catch Grant Hackett’s world record of 14:10.10.  And, with Hackett returning to the pool, it will be interesting to see if even he can challenge his own records.

Paltrinieri is the first Italian to win the men’s 1500 free after taking second to Mads Glaesner in 2012.

Tunisia’s Ous Mellouli finished second tonight in 14:18.79, also under the previous meet record, while Canada’s Ryan Cochrane clinched third in 14:23.35.

Faroe Islands’ Pal Joensen (14:26.54), Italy’s Gabriele Detti (14:29.94), Harrison (14:33.10), USA’s Michael McBroom (14:34.31) and Slovakia’s Richard Nagy (14:35.50) rounded out the top eight of the timed final event.
