Livigno's CPO gets richer, Olympic swimming pool inaugurated

A pool at altitude to dream of the five circles. A new 50-meter pool was inaugurated today at Aquagranda the CONI Olympic Preparation Center in Livigno that will allow Italian swimmers to better prepare for upcoming international challenges, starting with Paris 2024.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by CONI General Secretary Carlo Mornati, the Mayor of Livigno, Remo Galli, IOC member Federica Pellegrini, who for the occasion presented Livigno's new mascot called "Spolly," the President and AD of Livigno Tourism Board, Luca Moretti, the Head of the Office of Olympic Preparation, Alessio Palombi, national swimming team, Olympic snowboard champion Michela Moioli, track cycling Olympians Elia Viviani and Filippo Ganna, European 10. 000 meters Yemaneberhan Crippa and athletes from other disciplines linked to the Valtellina resort such as Jole Galli (skicross), Maurizio Bormolini (snowboarding) and Giacomo Bormolini (telemark). Also present were Livigno's councillor for sport, Marina Claoti, the Undersecretary with delegation for Sport and Youth Regione Lombardia, Lara Magoni, and in connection Antonio Rossi, City integration coordinator - Lombardy of Milano Cortina 2026 and kayak Olympian.

The Aquagranda CPO, the result of the memorandum of understanding signed in 2022 by CONI and the Livigno Tourist Promotion and Development Company, joined those of Acqua Acetosa (Rome), Formia and Tirrenia since last October. And as of today it officially has an Olympic swimming pool, which, built in the new spaces named "Federica Pellegrini Swimming Area," adds to the 25-meter pool already available. This is an additional weapon, at the service of Italian sport, which further embellishes a unique center in Italy that allows athletic training at altitude, on the highest plateau in Europe, of athletes of interest in Olympic Preparation and High Level.
