He has many years of experience in Finswimming but only when the stereofins were included in the international programs, he managed to join the National Finswimming Italian Team. Now he is one of the best Finswimmer (with Stereofins) in the World, and he won a lot of time the European and World Championships with the World Record in 200 mts stereofins ….
Maybe you already saw him long time ago when he was young, but only in the latest years he grew up becoming a Champion. This year in the latest World Championships in Saint Petersburg he won the Gold Medal in the hardest and longest competition: 20000 mt long distance, and we also have to say that he is the first Italian that won this kind of competition at Worls. Congratulations and we hope that you will have a long carieer!!!…
Importante appuntamento per il nostro Sport ieri pomeriggio. Il pluricampione del Mondo di Nuoto Pinnato Stefano Figini e il Presidente del settore Carlo Allegrini, accompagnati dall’Addetto Stampa federale Sergio Schiavone sono stati ricevuti a Palazzo Chigi dal Ministro della Gioventù On.

Al Ministro Meloni, l’incontro è servito, invece, per accendere i riflettori della politica e sottolineare gli esempi positivi che, come nel caso del giovane atleta Stefano Figini, possono contribuire a rimarcare che la gioventù italiana di oggi non è poi così “malata” come tanti indicano o fanno credere, e lo Sport è un ottimo modello da tenere in grande considerazione….

More than half hundred Italian Records, he saw Finswimming change from Bifins to the Monofin. Now he is a point of reference for a lot of Finswimmers. He is Giuseppe (Beppe) Galantucci….
