Saturday 21 from 9.30am smiles but also the organization on time: all ready. In this discipline the athlete decides autonomously when start the test then it is a lot of excitement. Then the crucial moment: the monofin Carrera disappears under the water and the diver, with its elegance and incredible speed, down into the blue sea of Santa Marina Salina. Immediately after completion of the test, however, the big disappointment: the judges of the CMAS not validate the result because Carrera has not complied with the protocol output. This regulation provides that the athlete should reach out and touch the assistant head of the jury present in the water within 10 seconds, while Davide has 18 employees. The athlete has the right to repeat the experiment the next day, he feels sure of himself and of his strength: we will try again the next day, always in the morning and always with our island of Salina to do by imposing a spectator.
