It was then that things took a turn for the better.As the man’s friends alerted a lifeguard, it turned out there was someone else closer, and faster to the faltering swimmer.It was former world champion swimmer Filippo Magnini, who won bronze at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. He got to the man in a few quick strokes and kept the man afloat until the lifeguard arrived. It was no big deal for Magnini, who told ANSA, “I did what I felt I should do.”
