Milan, May 23 - 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".
Pellegrini, who flopped at the 2012 London Olympics, has
redoubled the intensity of her training program in the hopes of
returning to the glory she achieved in 2008.
That's when she became the 200m freestyle Olympic champion.
The London Olympics were not kind to Magnini either.
He blasted the way Italy's swimmers were prepared for the
Olympics after failing to reach the final of the 100-metres
freestyle.
