LEN European Open Water Swimming Cup, 1st leg

Hungary doubles down the titles, Paltrinieri comes 4th

Hungarian swimmers enjoyed an exceptional day in Eilat, in the opening leg of the LEN European Open Water Swimming Cup. Kristof Rasovszky won the men’s event while Katalin Somenek came first among the women. Italy’s 1500m Olympic champion Gregorio Paltrinieri just missed the podium in his first ever 10km race.

The opening leg of the LEN European Open Water Swimming Cup was highlighted by the ‘sea-debut’ of Gregorio Paltrinieri. In fact, the Italian, who clinched the Olympic, world and European titles in the 1500m free in the past three years, returned to the open water races as he had been a usual participant in this discipline before he turned 17 (and his attention solely to pool competitions).
