Italy's Filippo Magnini surged ahead late to win the 100-meter freestyle Sunday in the Seven Hills meet in Rome, one of the last major international swimming competitions ahead of the Beijing Olympics.
Magnini clocked 48.35 seconds, slower than his personal best of 48.12 made in Montreal in 2005. France's Alain Bernard and Eamon Sullivan of Australia tied for second in 48.41.
