After her Olympic adventure, Federica Pellegrini has formalized her engagement with her coach, the 39-year-old Matteo Giunta from Pesaro. “If Matteo hadn’t been there, I probably would have stopped a few years ago”, he revealed in an interview with Tg1.
“Matteo was a great coach and a special life partner, I hope he will be in the future too”. Then the Divina explained her reserve on the love story: “The priority was to keep the image of the coach and the athlete separate and we were very good at this. He was a fundamental person, one of the most important in this path both human and sporting “.
Matteo Giunta has been Federica Pellegrini’s coach since 2013 and in 2018 the two presented themselves for the first time together at a gala evening as a couple (even if they never openly admitted). Per Fede is the first important love story after the long and troubled relationship with Filippo Magnini. With Giunta at her side, Pellegrini won the gold medal at the 2017 World Championships in Budapest and at the Gwangju World Championships in 2019.
