1st Race – 1st Victory - the King is back!

December 12th, 2012

After having changed training methods and swim-equipment, Filippo Magnini in his first race in HEAD leads the Italian team to the Silver medal at the 11th Short-Course FINA world-championships taking place in Istanbul this week.

Ranked 4th at the 3rd change, Filippo with an exceptional performance managed to bring the Italian team to the Silver Medal, just few 1/100 of seconds behind the team of the United States led by US-superstar Ryan Lochte.

Filippo Magnini: it was an exciting race, I’m happy that my hard training pays off now, my new HEAD material worked very well, in particular in the last 25 meters the suit gave me the compression and power I needed.

Filippo was swimming in HEAD Liquidfire race-suits and HEAD Ultimate LSR Silicone Race-Goggles.
