Santo Condorelli Says “I’m The Most International Swimmer” (Video)

2019 ITALIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

Be sure to check out our SwimSwam Italia Channel for more in-depth and on-site coverage.

Sporting a sizable mustache, 24-year-old Santo Condorelli earned his first national title since changing representation to the country of Italy.

While competing on day 2 of the Italian Championships, the meet which serves as selection for this summer’s World Championships, Condorelli clocked a winning time of 23.76 to take gold in the men’s 50m fly. He wasn’t alone, however, as he tied countryman Piero Codia to share the podium.

Speaking on-deck with SwimSwam, Condorelli stated, “I’m the most international of intentional swimmers. No other swimmer has represented 3 nations,” speaking to the fact the former USC Trojan has competed for the United States, Canada and now Italy.

When asked why he chose Italy, Condorelli responded, “Why not? I’m young…this gives me a chance to live over here.”

On day 1 here in Riccione, Condorelli earned 4th place in the 50m free in 22.15. He’ll compete in the 100m free tomorrow.

I don’t care where Santo swims. He’ll always be a Bolles School Shark to me. And I’ll always be rooting for him. His Instagram is a total blast. Congratulations Santo. 💪

The fact that everyone here takes dumps on him and he doesn’t care makes me like him more

He would make the Olympic team for any country.
Seeing different countries and Coultures and getting paid is what this is all about.

Well he hasn’t made the Italian Worlds team yet. It’s strange to call yourself the most international swimmer if you can’t even compete on international stage. He still has chance in 100 free though.

To quote a post by a wise man (you) in the SwimSwam comments section: “Or, and here (sic) me out on this, move somewhere else.”

There’s lots of articles on this site. Don’t like this one? Read another one. Aggravated because of some personal feelings toward a particular athlete? Not much we can do to help you with that one.
