Federica Pellegrini ‘dumped’ by coach Bonifacenti


Warning, my Italian is really lousy (/non-existant), but according to Taiwan News, Federica Pellegrini has split from her coach Federico Bonifacenti, third coach since the death of her former trainer and mentor Alberto Castagnetti in October 2009, adding a quote from her website: “Unfortunately it is not easy to work with me”. Google Translate quotes her for writing on her blog: “I was hoping not to be dumped in 2 weeks from the Europeans, but it’s ok”.
