Political Science and Administration student Ilaria Corazza won a gold medal at the World University Rowing Championships hosted in Rotterdam, bringing UniTS to the top step of the podium.

The young athlete, together with Gaia Colasante of the University of Turin, triumphed in the women's doubles final, which took place in the Willem-Alexander Baan lake, thanks to a resounding stretch that started around 1,000 meters, first putting the Lithuanian crew behind and then overtaking the Polish team.

In the third leg of the race, the Italian pair increased the gap, holding the lead until the finish line with a 1.19-second advantage over the Polish team.

Ilaria Corazza adds this world championship title to an already rich record of achievements that counts an overall World title in the Lightweight four pair, a world title and an under-23 European title in the same speciality, as well as the recent victory at the University Games 2023 in the women's doubles.

Ilaria, who once again carried the colours of the Italian Rowing Federation and the University of Trieste, receives compliments from the entire academic community for the extraordinary talents she continues to demonstrate as an athlete and for the consistency and determination with which she reconciles her sporting and university commitments.
