2018 SETTE COLLI TROPHY
The final session of the 2018 Sette Colli Trophy in Rome is set to get underway, and an another exciting session is in store.
The most anticipated race of the night without a doubt is the men’s 50 fly, where top seed Andrii Govorov has said he’s aiming for the world record. He was just a tenth off a few weeks ago, but he’ll have to deal with Ben Proud, the reigning world champ in the event, who swam one of the fastest 50 frees in history on day 1.
