CHANGE OF COACH
In 2018 she decided to relocate to Imola, Italy, to start training with partner Fabio Scozzoli's coach Cesare Casella. She began doing less distance in the water and complemented her swimming with more physical workouts. "I do not swim as much as before and now I am more focused on strength. My water skill has always been there, but in comparison with the other swimmers I was not as strong." (corriere.it, 13 Dec 2018; sport.sky.it, 12 Dec 2018)
