The penultimate day of racing at the Sailing World Championships handed Italia Team the last two passes for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.
Protagonists in the waters of The Hague (Netherlands) were Carolina Albano (photo FIV) and Lorenzo Brando Chiavarini, who finished the ten preliminary races in ninth and sixth place respectively in ILCA 6 and ILCA 7.
In addition to gaining access to the Medal Race on Sunday 20 August, the two Azzurri also won one of the five Olympic quotas reserved for the best 16 boats for each gender.
The Dutch world championship event has thus enabled no fewer than seven tricolour crews to secure their passes for Paris 2024.
In addition to Albano and Chiavarini, Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti in Nacra 17, Nicolò Renna in men’s iQFOiL, Marta Maggetti in women’s iQFOil, Riccardo Pianosi in men’s kite and Maggie Eillen Pescetto in women’s kite all achieved their goals over the last few days.
