17-year-old Simone Sabbioni (Army / Swim Pro SS9), broke the Italian record in the 100m back at Italian Nationals on Tuesday with 53.49. He also broke the Italian Cadet (boys born in 1995-1996) record.
In this video uploaded by the Italian Federation, you see Sabbioini take charge in lane 6 (lane 8 is at the bottom of the screen) from the start.
At the same meet last year, Sabbioni finished third overall and set both the Junior World and Italian Junior records (one level younger than Cadet) with 54.74.
Sabbioni’s performance moved him up to sixth in the world so far this year.
Here is another version, taken at a different angle, which shows the finish a little better, and gives you a feeling for the enthusiasm felt by the crowd in Riccione:
