Marco Orsi Records Italian Textile Best

Last weekend at the Bermen Cup European Short Course Championship 100 freestyle bronze medalist, Italian Marco Orsi recorded an Italian textile best in the 100 freestyle posting a 46.40.

The Italian record of 46.26 was set by Filippo Magnini in 2009 was done in a polyurethane suit. Orsi recently beat the textile best which was also set by Magnini in 2005 when he swam 46.52. Coming into the season Orsi had a textile best of 47.36 and has improved at a steady pace throughout the year putting up a 46.49 in Herning, which earned him a bronze.

Ori’s time this weekend is good enough to take over the 5th place ranking in the world, a place that Russian Danila Izotov occupied with a time of 46.41 that he posted in Herning to grab the silver medal ahead of Orsi.
