Aqua Centurions’ Men’s 4×100 Medley Relay Sets Italian Record at ISL Match 10


The Aqua Centurions team of Thomas Ceccon, Nicolo Martinenghi, Matteo Rivolta and Alessandro Miressi set a new Italian record in the men’s short course meters 4×100 medley relay at Match 10 of the International Swimming League’s third season.

The team went 3:23.51, besting the prior record of 3:24.12. Ceccon led off in 50.73, Martinenghi went 56.32, Rivolta was 50.24 and Miressi brought it home in 46.22.

Three of the four swimmers — Martinenghi, Rivolta and Miressi — were on the prior record-setting relay at an ISL match in Naples in October 2019. Simone Sabbioni led off that relay in 50.57, followed by Martinenghi in 56.44, Rivolta in 50.28 and Miressi in a significantly slower 46.84.

Ceccon, Martinenghi and Miressi were all on Italy’s bronze medal-winning 4×100 medley relay at the Tokyo Olympics, joined by butterflyer Federico Burdisso, who’s currently swimming collegiately for Northwestern.

The Aqua team picked up 24 points in the win on Saturday, jackpotting teams from the New York Breakers and Tokyo Frog Kings. The Aqua B team took second, just .65 seconds back, and included Sabbioni, Arno Kamminga, Szebasztian Szabo and Vladislav Grinev.
