Swimmer Federica Pellegrini proclaimed that she was the greatest Italian athlete ever after setting the tenth world record in the 200-meter freestyle at the world swimming championships in Rome.
"With today' s world record, I' ve had 10 world records before I' m 21.
I' ve won an Olympic gold medal, two world championship gold medals
here. So, I think so," she told reporters at a news conference when asked if she was the greatest Italian athlete ever.
"Without any false modesty, I didn' t think there were any doubts about that as of a few world records ago. There you have it," she went on to say.
We' ll leave it to the Italians to discuss this debate themselves if she is indeed the "greatest Italian athlete" of all time. There are probably a few soccer fans who would disagree with her but one thing if for sure...she may be the most photographed in the buff Italian athlete ever.
A quick Google search tuned up dozen of "almost" naked photos of Pellegrini. Take a look below:
