Federica Pellegrini welcomed in Tokyo by anti-doping: the first hours in the Olympic Village


The Italian champion documents the first hours of the Tokyo Olympics on social media: from the cardboard beds to the plexiglass that separates the diners in the canteen of the Olympic Village.

The Olympic adventure of Federica Pellegrini: the Italian champion landed in Tokyo, where she will participate in her fifth and last Olympics. To welcome her, shortly after landing, the surprise anti-doping test, a routine frequently reserved for the most successful athletes.

"And that you don't want to do a good anti-doping as soon as you arrive? " wrote the swimmer joking about it and sharing for followers the photo of her arm with a small patch that protects the spot where the surprise sample was taken.

In Federica's reportage there are also the first shots from the Olympic Village: the swimmer shows in the Instagram stories the now famous cardboard bed, which has been talked about a lot in recent days. An ecological choice on the part of the organization of the Games, even if there were those who thought it was a way to dissuade intimate relationships: in reality today the organizers have specified that the cardboard beds "they are robust " and it is therefore not true that they would have broken at the first sudden movement or under the weight of more than one person.

The blue champion then jokes on the plexiglass that divides the seats at the table in the Olympic canteen, showing a video of the lunch with her coach Matteo Giunta, with the amused comment: "at the post office... ".

Thus began the Olympics of Federica Pellegrini in the name of good humor, who in Tokyo will chase the fifth Olympic final in the 200 sl, after the gold in Beijing 2008 and the silver in Athens 2004.
