Detti Returns from Shoulder Injury With 1:46 SCM 200 Free


In his first swims since October, on a month of training after recovering from a shoulder injury late last year, Italian swimmer Gabriele Detti won the men’s 200 SCM free in 1:46.94.

Detti’s specialties lie more in the 400 meter-plus distances, but with only a month of training behind him, he stuck to the 200 freestyle this weekend – scratching out of the 400 free final on Sunday. While that 200 free is far from his career best of 1:43.65, it is the 10th-best time of his career.
