Valerio Cleri And Alice Franco Suit Up For Italy

Valerio Cleri was charging in fast, but just ran out of room in today’s 1 km grid race on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro.

He and teammate Alice Franco finished second to the victorious Brazilian team of Samuel de Bona and Poliana Okimoto. But Cleri came to Brazil to win as he said in today’s press conference, “We are looking forward to Sunday’s race [at the 2013 King and Queen of the Sea competition].”
