(ADW) For Raphael Stacchiotti this will be his second appearance at the Olympic Games. Even though he missed out on directly qualifying by only five hundredths of a second, he was eventually invited by the Fina Swimming Federation to compete in London.
In 2008 Stacchiotti was Luxembourg's youngest Olympic athlete.
Four years on, the swimmer is focusing on getting a good time in his two races; the 200 and 400 metres and, of course, aiming to get through to the next round. The 20-year-old certainly seems optimistic.
