Pellegrini selects Claudio Rossetto as her London 2012 coach


The Italian Swimming Federation (FIN) announced yesterday evening following a meeting between Federica Pellegrini and national swimming team coaches that her new coach will be the same as Magnini’s, and that her preparation for the London 2012 Olympics starts with a 20 day long altitude camp in Flagstaff, Arizona on January 8.

After the training camp she’ll be based in Rome, and also spend time training along with the rest of the Italy swimming team at the national training centres in Ostia and Verona. FIN president Paolo Barelli said at the end of the meeting, that “the agreed training schedule will allow Federica to be relaxed and train well in preparation for her appearance at the Olympics.” Read more (in English) here on Gazzetta.
