Italian Olympic champion Federica Pellegrini wants to swim in a fourth Olympics before calling it a career.

“I want to swim in the Olympics of 2016, then I will leave,” she told Italian magazine Grazia, according to Italian reports. ”I want to be a wife, mother, with a quiet job.

“I am a very private person. I do not believe that, after my swimming, I’ll still want to be in the spotlight.”
