Federica Pellegrini he had two important news for everyone: one, he quits swimming and two has one love story with the coach.
A classic you will say. The swimming champion who will celebrate 33 years has formalized the bond but he did not take it very well.
Here's what happened.
Federica Pellegrini and Matteo Giunta: love story revealed
Federica Pellegrini in the end he didn't hold up and declared that he had a love story with Matteo Giunta, aka his coach.
The 39-year-old, cousin of his ex Filippo Magnini and his own trainer since 2014.
Out of the blue it turns out that the two are having an affair, she says: "If Matteo hadn't been there, I probably would have stopped a few years ago" reiterating the intent of leave swimming, a choice that the athlete has been pondering for some time.
Federica says of Matteo: “Matteo was a great coach and a special life partner, I hope it will also be in the future. The priority was to keep the image of the coach and the athlete separate and we were very good at that. He was a fundamental person, one of the most important in this human and sporting path ”.
Only now has he decided to admit the truth, which is that they hang out. The two had already appeared at a gala evening as a couple but never admitting it publicly.
But Matteo Giunta is not the only news, everyone is asking "what will Pellegrini do now?" and she replies "First of all to go home that everyone is waiting for me, celebrate my birthday because 33 is an important age, then we have to get the athletes to vote for the IOC, in September, hopefully November will be there too. Isl in Naples, then a docufilm will be released, then a book is planned, then the recordings of Italia's got talent ”.
Matteo Giunta reacts to the statements of Federica Pellegrini
Federica Pellegrini says: "We waited for the right moment to do it, even if it was a bit the secret of Pulcinella. I am happy that all those who knew it respected our desire to live this story in the right roles, I am an athlete, he is my coach, for a team balance. It wasn't easy at first, but now we can do what we want. "
Matteo Giunta when pulled into question, he knew nothing about it and perhaps he preferred that she not blurt out everything "She came to me and said to me: 'I guess I put you in the middle of it …'. I am happy that in this whirlwind of emotions you have opened up beyond sport, but I am a federal technician, it would not seem correct to me to speak at the Olympics of my private lifeI mean, he probably wanted to be notified first.
