Is Q. Antognelli going to be the next Monégasque athlete to qualify for the Japanese Olympics after table tennis champion Ziaoxin Yang? In just a few days, the sculler will enter the water in Varese, Italy, for the European rowing qualifying for Tokyo 2020.
He will be competing against 16 other competitors. Only the top three finishers in a race covering 2000 metres (about seven minutes) will be awarded the grand prize of a trip to Tokyo.

The athlete from Monaco recently said, “I took part in national tournaments in France and things went well.” Good health and fitness are priorities for me. I’ve rowed with most of the other contenders before, and we were all on even footing.
Assuming 2024, will Tokyo Beat Paris?
Getting into the Olympics is a life goal for Q. Antognelli (1.89m, 84kg). It’s an honour to compete in the Olympic Games. It would be incredible to qualify and then make a spectacular entrance.
Even if the sculler fails to qualify in Varese, he still has a shot at doing so in Lucerne, Switzerland. The world qualifying regatta was from May 15-17, and he might have been able to compete, but only the top two finishers there would go on to Tokyo.
As a rower, Q. Antognelli has his sights set on both Tokyo 2020 and the Paris 2024 Olympics, and if he follows in Xiaoxin Yang’s footsteps and qualifies for Tokyo, “it indicates that Monégasques can do it,” then perhaps other people will be motivated to follow in his or her footsteps.

It takes a lot of time and dedication to become an elite sculler, which is why most of the top athletes are at least four or five years older than me. Q. Antognelli is in his final year of graduate study in business management at England’s Oxford Brooks University.
When it comes to rowing, Oxford is a household name. About 20 athletes who I work with are aiming for spots on the English Olympic squad and medals in the Games. Having the opportunity to spend time with them is quite humbling.
