Olympic medalist Federica Pellegrini says her romance with fellow swimming sensation Filippo Magnini is over. “We are very disappointed to announce that our love affair is over,” Pellegrini, who won Olympic gold in Beijing in 2008, said in an interview Thursday with ANSA.

Reports of trouble between the pair had been circulating for years. Speaking from France, where both are training for the world championships in Barcelona in August, Pellegrini said that she and Magnini will continue to train together.

“Sometimes it’s just that the feeling fades,” she said. “We will continue our journey in professional sports, focusing only on that”.
