They didn’t give her anything, she also had to sweat the last international podium in the Champions Isl in Eindhoven and her third place in the 200 freestyle symbolizes a woman who never gives up. Federica Pellegrini would have liked to win, she tried, she also took the lead at 150 meters, but in the end it was the European long course champion, the Czech Barbora Seemanova, who reached in 1’54. “17 on the American Hali Flickinger 1’54” 36, then Fede third in 1’54 “53. Immense, at 33 years and 3 months after having won all and 89 international medals. And then the mixed men-women relay runs off to swim, with the humility and generosity of all time, putting themselves at the service of the second team of the Giunta team, the Aqua Centurions and reaches fifth place with a 53 ”32 fraction. On Tuesday, Fede will compete in Riccione in the 200 sl, the latest tribute to his club Aniene and to blue swimming.

Before going into the water, the Divine had told Sky: “The important thing was not to finish fourth. No, that’s fine. If you ask the little girl she would be very pissed off… It’s so hard to say goodbye, I won’t physically be able to go back to that 10 year old, but inside of me there is always that little girl who says: try it, try it, try it. After the Tokyo Olympics, if I hadn’t been offered the Isl, my career would surely have ended in Tokyo. I confirm: they were my last international competitions. The federation was very nice to me because they offered me both the Europeans and the World Championships in Abu Dhabi. I said no to the Europeans because I had the recordings of Italia’s Got Talent and most likely I will say no in Abu Dhabi. I say this reluctantly, but honestly at some point it is right to make a final decision “.
