Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She took up diving at age five in Milan, Italy. She decided to train professionally while she was at high school.
Why this sport?
"I entered the world of diving almost by accident at age five. I was attending a swimming course and at the end of each workout they made us jump into the water in a life jacket. I was the only one who jumped higher and higher without fear. At age five, I showed skills in diving but not in swimming. So my swimming coach took my hand and we went to the water space dedicated to diving. From that moment on I never attended a swimming lesson."
