Member, NOC Athletes’ Commission (2018-)

Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election

Sport has been in my DNA since I was a kid, when my parents put me in a pool before I even knew how to walk.

Sport, from a young age, taught me the value of commitment, discipline, serious and constant work to achieve results.

I have experienced great joys, sudden falls and painful moments, but these values have never failed: I recognize them in the Olympic Charter and I want to help support and spread them.

The pride of having been the flagbearer of the Italian National Delegation in the Opening Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games stimulates me even more to be the voice of all athletes, of any background and culture, and witness the beauty of sport.
