Degree in Sciences and Techniques of Preventive and Adapted Motor Activities at the San Raffaele University of Rome: “It is the crowning glory of a part of my life”

Yet another recognition for Federica Pellegrini, who was awarded an honorary degree in Sciences and Techniques of Preventive and Adapted Motor Activities at the San Raffaele University in Rome. The Olympic champion gave a lectio magistralis entitled “Women and Sports Performance: how the menstrual cycle can affect performance”.



“It is an incredible day, I am really happy – the words of the 34-year-old from Veneto -. It is the culmination of a part of my life. Bringing a thesis on the menstrual cycle in athletes, a topic very dear to me, gave me so much satisfaction. What’s in my future? As a sportswoman who trained a lot, I strongly believe in meritocracy, I hope to become a good manager by studying a lot “.

“I think it is a priority to help the world of sport to overcome this impasse and this very difficult moment – adds Pellegrini -. I would like to say to help the swimming pools in the first place, given the emergency of the expensive bills”. Present at the ceremony, among others, the president of Coni, Giovanni Malagò.
