Meet Fabrizia D’Ottavio, Italy’s Young Ambassador for Singapore 2010
I’m Fabrizia D’Ottavio, the young ambassador for Italy. I’m 25 and I come from Chieti, a little town in Abruzzo. I was a gymnast with the Italian national team from 2002 to 2008, and I left competition after the Olympic Games in Beijing.
The most important results of my career are the silver medal in the Athens Olympic Games in 2004, and the gold medals in the Baku World Championships in 2005 and the European Championships in Turin in 2008.
Now I’m studying communication at university, and I’m working with a theatrical company made up of eight ex-gymnasts (called Rhyth.mix), and doing performances on television, too.
My appointment as a young ambassador is an honour for me, and I really hope that my contribution will help to spread the Olympic values among young people.
Excellence, Friendship, Respect, but also Joy...in one word, Sport!!
