The water is his sky, welcome Edoardo Petroni!
“I always wanted to be Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up. I can’t fly, but swimming is the next best thing. It’s harmony and balance. The water is my sky.” (Clayton Jones)
Swimming is his strength and his starting point. The water is his natural habitat, blue like the sky and, when he’ll be running, without any doubts he will fly like Peter Pan!
Edoardo Petroni is 20 years old and his birthday is on Christmas and he swims since he was two. He has participated many times to the Italian Swimming Championships of Riccione, the Settecolli Swimming Event and the Italian Swimming Age Group Championships, gaining a gold, a silver and a bronze medal.
Mauro Pera has discovered this talent and convinced him to race for us. He is uncovering our amazing and beautiful world which is also made of swimming but there is a lot more. The multi discipline has many fascinating aspects that are attracting Edoardo: the variables of triathlon training, the many outstanding triathlon events, the dietary balance and the completeness of the athletic movement. From now on, not only a single sport to be trained in its technical particularity but three.
As three are the triathlons in which he has already raced, performing marvelously: second place in Tarquinia, first in Marina of Grosseto and second in Nepi, just behind his “mentor” Mauro Pera.
Young and humble, he thanks us for the opportunity that we are giving to him.
Welcome Edoardo! You are in the PPRTeam because we have seen in you the perfect qualities.
