In the opening session of finals at Italian Swimming Championships in Riccione, Federica Pellegrini finished third in the 400m freestyle. No shame. Her focus on the 200m, her 400m effort, 4:08.27, part of her preparation but no longer her ambition, Pellegrini had never faced tougher domestic challenge: the crown went to Alice Mizzau in 4:06.22, the silver to Diletta Carli in 4:06.87, Nos 2 and 3 on the all-time Italy list
