2024 Sette Colli Trophy: Day 2 Finals Live Recap

2024 SETTE COLLI TROPHY

The second night of the 2024 Sette Colli Trophy features a dozen finals, including a fun women’s 100 freestyle battle between Swedish world record holder Sarah Sjostrom (53.41 in prelims) and Hong Kong star Siobhan Haughey (53.93 in prelims).

Reigning world champion Marrit Steenbergen did not contest the 100 free this morning. Rio 2016 Olympic champion Penny Oleksiak (55.18 in prelims) will be chasing the qualifying time of 53.61 in search of an individual berth in Paris next month.

Two months removed from foot surgery, Lithuanian world record holder Ruta Meilutyte did not earn a second swim in the women’s 50 breaststroke after clocking a 32.67 in prelims. Italian record holder Benedetta Pilato was the only swimmer under 30 seconds during the women’s 50 breast heats at 29.99 this morning.

European record holder Katinka Hosszu is hunting for her sixth Olympic appearance in the 400 IM. The 35-year-old new mom qualified 2nd in prelims this morning (4:42.97) behind defending world champion Freya Colbert (4:41.00), about four seconds off the Olympic ‘A’ cut.

Among the Italians seeking last-minute Olympic qualification before the June 23 deadline are Olympic medalist Federico Burdisso in the men’s 200 fly and Costanza Cocconcelli in the women’s 100 butterfly.

Viola Scotto di Carlo blasted a huge lifetime best to likely add her name to the Italian Olympic roster right before the June 23 deadline. She reached the wall in 57.87 for 3rd place, dropping more than half a second off her previous-best 58.49 from last summer to sneak under the Olympic ‘A’ cut of 57.92.

i wonder why Sarah Sjostrom won’t swim the 100 in Paris? i’m sad she’s only gonna swim the 50

She wants to win the 50. 3×100 is to much energy used up at her age. She can drop a great 100 but I think three rounds would be too much.

Sjostrom just casually swimming a time in an event for funsies that it takes the world’s top 100 meter sprinters a full taper to hit. NBD.

Probably because Regan didn’t swim at this meet. Most like to keep the comments relative to the meet that’s being covered.

Sjostrom still has it in the 100 free; would love to see her swim both 100 free and fly in the Olympics (as well as the 50 free).

Dropping the 100 Fly I get with the clash with the 4×1 Free but don’t really understand dropping the 100 Free when she’s definitely in the hunt for a medal and there’s no relay clashes.

Perhaps she will swim it, based on how she’s swum here.

She said in February she’ll just be swimming the 50 Free individually in Paris:

https://swimswam.com/sarah-sjostrom-reveals-that-she-will-not-swim-the-100-free-at-paris-2024-olympics/

Hopefully this swim makes her reconsider though.

There was a Swedish article earlier in the year where she said doing three rounds of 100 free is very tough so she doesn’t want to do it before the 50 free.

You gotta think if she’s swim it if she feels like she has a 51 in her. She wasn’t that far off last summer so it could happened.

I’d rather her get a gold in the 50free than a silver in both 50/100frees
