(ANSA) – ROME, MARCH 04 – “Optimistic for the Olympic Games? I believe so, there will be many restrictions, perhaps mandatory quarantine and absence of the public but I am willing to do anything, I simply want to compete. We will accept every decision made. , the important thing will be to compete because we trained a lot. I’m confident “. This was stated by Gregorio Paltrinieri, Olympic champion in the 1,500 meters freestyle, who is preparing for the competitive season in Valtournenche, in the Aosta Valley. “I am happy with how the path taken with the new coach is going – he added – and the only problem is the lack of competitions because you can compare yourself with the others. It was not easy to stay away from competitions, I have never competed a lot, especially compared to the sprinters, but surely a season with so little chance of meeting other swimmers makes itself felt “.
