Nicolo Martinenghi Downs 100 Breast World Junior & Italian Records at Sette Colli

World Junior Record holder Nicolo Martinenghi downed the World Junior and Italian National Records in the men’s 100 breast during finals of the first day of competition at the 2017 Sette Colli International.

The men’s 100 breast featured World Record holder Adam Peaty, former meet record holder Giedrius Titenis, and Fabio Scozzoli, the previous holder of the Italian National Record. Swimming against such a talented field of athletes, it should come as little surprise that Martinenghi improved his previous best time of 59.46 to a 59.31.

Martinenghi’s .15 second improvement cleared Scozzoli’s 2011 record of 59.42, which the young Italian came close to this past April at the Italian National Championships.

Comparable splits:

  • Martinenghi (June 2017): 27.54, 31.77 = 59.31
  • Martinenghi (April 2016): 27.65, 31.81 = 59.46

The meet, which plays host to a multitude of international champions, runs from June 23 – 25.
