Italian rower tested positive COVID test

ITALY raced their way to an Olympic bronze in the men’s four medal race on Wednesday, but team stalwart Bruno Rosetti missed out on his chance for a treasured piece of hardware after a coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) test came back positive hours before the final. The 33-year-old’s sample was taken on Tuesday and confirmed positive on Wednesday morning, according to World Rowing, as Rosetti was moved into in isolation. The other three members of his men’s four crew tested negative and Marco di Costanzo, 29, took his place in the boat on Wednesday.
