Federica Pellegrini quietly training with Philippe Lucas and soon with the Italian National team in the United States!

Federica Pellegrini is quietly training with Philippe Lucas in Paris; the coach who made Laure Manaudou may now remake Pellegrini into something better. Will her technique change? Will she dominate in even more events outside her signature races?

Also, Bummer for the Italians that their US training camps are not not located in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and New York but rather: "...Fort Lauderdale, Flagstaff and Coral Springs in the United States and the open water swimmers in Perth, Australia. ..."

From a FINA news release:
"[Pellegrini] ... Next week-end she will be in Rome for the “coppa Brema”, a competition which awards the national title per club. After this Italian stop, she will be back in Paris before taking part in the Italian Championships in Riccione from April 13-17, a very important test in sight of the FINA World Championships in Shanghai next July: there, Pellegrini will be at the start of the 100m, 200m, 400m and 800m freestyle.
