Federica Pellegrini & Matteo Giunta Announce Birth Of Baby Daughter

Two-time Olympic medallist Federica Pellegrini and Matteo Giunta have announced the birth of their daughter Matilde.

Matilde is the first child for the Italian couple who married in August 2022, months after Pellegrini retired from the sport following a long and illustrious career that spanned 17 years and five Olympics and which included 200 free gold and silver at Beijing 2008 and Athens 2004 respectively.

The 35-year-old also claimed six long-course world titles and seven European golds and her 200 free WR of 1:52.98 stood from the 2009 World Championships to July last year when Mollie O’Callaghan lowered it to 1:52.85 at the Fukuoka worlds.

In a post to social media, they said:

“Complicated 2 days….
Finally you arrived !!!!
