Tania Cagnotto

Tania Cagnotto, extraordinary World Champion as well as silver and bronze medalist in diving at the last Olympics, has accompanied us for years winning and using our products.

She confidentially told us that her first dive happened at 2 years of age, slipping into the pond of the Acqua Acetosa sports center in Rome: a sort of “sign of destiny”.

Since she was a child she never gave up and at the little age of 6 she dived for the first time in the water of a real pool, what she called “the most natural gesture in the world!”

We admire her strenght and sincerity when she says: “I just wanted to plunge, that’s all. I wanted to imitate what they had done, my father and mother, and at the same time I had crazy fun. There you go, to dive for me meant playing. And dreaming. Yes, because ever since I was little I dreamed a lot, I dreamed of going to the Olympics…”
