ALL YOU NEED IS SWIM!
With this virtual competition we aim to make the voice and the need of our sport heard, because it needs those organizations and events, thousands every year throughout Italy, that guarantee both health and tourism and visibility to locations that are unique in the world.
We are proud to be able to count on Spokespeople who do not need to be introduced , representing the highest level of our sport both at national and international level: Martina Grimaldi, Alisia Tettamanzi, Simone Ruffini and Edoardo Stochino… once more champions both outside and inside the water, ideally close to swimmers all over the country.
The main partner of the event is one we believe is the perfect representation of the spirit of our competition: the historic Grand Prix Sicilia Open Water FIN that already symbolically unites Italy of open water swimming, from the beaches of Trinacria to the lakes of Lombardy.
All the participants will be entered in a grand final ranking on IOWT’s classics races: SMILE SWIM by 2500mt and HARD SWIM by 5000mt, divided into saltwater and freshwater categories. These rankings, taken from the times uploaded to your personal profile of italianopenwatertour.com, are just the pretext to start trying and feeling again that unique sense of competition and sharing that our sport knows how to give.
In addition to the first absolutes, who will be awarded the registrations for the Italian Open Water Challenge 2020 stage in Peschiera del Garda on the 27th of September, prestigious technical prizes and entries to races all over Italy ,made available by Organizers who immediately moved in support of ALL YOU NEED IS SWIM… IL NUOTO UNISCE ITALIA, sharing its spirit and purpose, will be awarded.
