Thomas Ceccon

GS Fiamme Oro/Leosport

The World Championship in Budapest 2022 was the consecration of this artist of Italian swimming; in the 100 m backstroke he won gold, setting a new world record with a time of 51"60, and he has no intention of stopping.

Coached by Alberto Burlina at the federal centre in Verona, he has had a really important and exciting development in recent years. He manages to combine commitment and sacrifice with passion and fun for this discipline, becoming an example for the new generations.

Passion, fun and an important vision towards Paris 2024. Keep your head down but look to the future.
