RETIREMENT
She announced her retirement shortly after her participation at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. "Synchro gave me a lot and I gave a lot to sync. After 22 years, however, it is time to stop. Also because synchronised swimming can be mentally and physically devastating. I started at four and, after 22 years of my career, I'm really tired. Living all year round in a hotel, always being in the water and in the car to get home is no longer for me. I had been pondering this decision for some time, but then I always retraced my steps. Now I have no doubts. I'm serene and I know I finished at the top with the Rio Olympics." (lastampa.it, 08 Oct 2016)
