«I express my most sincere appreciation to John Casertayoung swimmer of Catanzarowho will represent Italy at the Paris Olympics 2024 in the 4×200 freestyle relay. His participation in the Games is a source of pride for our region, which has not seen a representative since the 1968 Olympics, when Michele D’Oppido from Crotone participated in the Mexico City Games. Giovanni will not only fly the colors of Italy, but he will also be an ambassador for the best of Calabria”. This was stated by the President of the Regional Council Filippo Mancuso, commenting on the recent Olympic qualification of the 2002 class obtained after the brilliant result at the Settecolli 2024 Trophy held at the Foro Italico in Rome. Mancuso added: “Results like Giovanni Caserta’s enhance a sporting discipline like swimming, complete, synonymous with health and well-being, which teaches you not to give up at the first difficulties and above all highlights the ability to work as a system, throughout the regional territory, by FIN Calabria, the widespread swimming clubs, the technicians and enthusiasts who are very attentive to cultivating talents and making them grow. Giovanni Caserta’s story is an example and a source of inspiration for all young Calabrians, because it shows that with commitment and perseverance, the greatest dreams can come true”. The president of the highest Calabrian assembly concluded: “This is a useful opportunity, a few weeks before the start of the Olympic Games and on behalf of the entire Regional Council of Calabria, to wish Giovanni Caserta and all our athletes who will participate in Paris 2024, the best for this unique adventure, aware that they will represent Italy and Calabria to the fullest on the stage of the Olympics, inspiring the world with their extraordinary commitment and dedication to sport”.
