CC photo #329: Gregorio Paltrinieri on the Debrecen 2012 podium


Young gun Gregorio Paltrinieri from Italy on the Debrecen 2012 European Swimming Championships podium, showing his medals to the photographers after winning the men’s 1500 freestyle in a new championships record of 14:48.92. See result list here. So I guess he’s the complete European champion now, having won the 1500 meter freestyle both long course and short course, and ranked highest of the Europeans in the 1500 at the Olympics (#5).
