Italy’s number one swimmer Federica Pellegrini has signed an endorsement deal with Proctor & Gamble’s (P&G) anti-dandruff shampoo brand Head & Shoulders.
Pellegrini, 25, is the most successful female swimmer in Italian history and will be the face of Head & Shoulders in Italy. Argentinean soccer star Lionel Messi is also an ambassador of the brand.
“I am proud to be part of the family P&G for this launch so important in hair care Italy. Head & shoulders is a line of products on which I can rely on, especially given the amount of time I spend in the pool every week,” said Federica Pellegrini. “With beautiful hair, I have the security to achieve the goals I care about most.”

The LEN Bureau chose Netanya (ISR) to host the European Short Course Swimming Championships to be held on 15-18 January 2015. Israel will stage such a large-scale swimming event for the very first time.
Representatives of the Israeli Swimming Federation and the city of Netanya presented a rather impressive bid to the LEN Bureau in Herning (during the short course Europeans in December 2013) and the members – through mail votes – made an unanimous decision to award Netanya the right to host the next European Short Course Swimming Championships in January 2015.
The venue of the event is going to be the brand new swimming complex of the Wingate Institute. The latter serves as Israel’s National Institute for Sport & Physical Education and it covers a 120-acre area on the Mediterranean beach, 20km north of Tel-Aviv, just a short drive from Netanya’s city centre.
