Summary

In June and July 2000 Roman Sludnov of Russia and America’s Ed Moses posted the two fastest times in history and the scene was set for the two men to dispute the Olympic title and possibly even break the one-minute barrier for the event. Even when Domenico Fioravanti, the Italian who held the European title, set the fastest time in both qualifying rounds few thought that that he could beat the duo to the Olympic championships.

Fioravanti had other ideas and, with neither Sludnov nor Moses quite up to their top form, the Italian broke the Olympic record on the way to becoming his nation’s first ever Olympic swimming champion. A few days later he added another gold in the 200 metres breaststroke but he was denied an opportunity to defend these titles. Shortly before the Athens Games he was forced to retire due to a genetic heart abnormality
