2017 Energy For Swim - RomeAugust 8-9, 2017
You might know a few things about Italy's Gregorio Paltrinieri. He is the 2016 Olympic gold medalist in the 1500m freestyle, 2015 and 2017 World Champion in the 1500, and the second-fastest performer of all time in the 1500 (14:34.04) behind China's Sun Yang. So you could say he's pretty good at this distance swimming thing.
But, did you know Paltrinieri is a huge NBA fan? More specifically, he is a fan of the lowly New York Knicks. At the 2017 Energy for Swim in Rome, Italy FloSwimming caught up with Greg to talk about the Italian charity his team was racing for, his NBA fandom, and trade rumors involving Carmelo Anthony and Kyrie Irving.
