Federica Pellegrini has validated her ticket for the Olympic Games in Tokyo (July 23 – August 8), at 200 m. and it will be her fifth Olympics since Athens in 2004. The Italian Olympic champion in the 200 m in 2008, easily won the final in the meeting of Riccione, with a time of 1’56”69, synonymous with qualification (the minimum was set at 1’56”90).

Pellegrini, who still holds the world record in the 200m (1’52”98 in 2009), could not restrain his tears when leaving the pool, confiding his “emotion” at the microphone of the RAI. “It hasn’t been easy months,” she said. “Today I breathe better. ”
