After Simonazzi’s big win in 2009, she began focusing on International competitions, such as the World Cup and FINA Grand Prix series. There, she saw huge improvements in placement and started to climb the Grand Prix leaderboard. In 2010, Simonazzi placed 3rd at the Sabac Marathon, and 7th in the Grand Prix world rankings. In 2011, she struggled with a physical injury, but despite the setback, she still managed to finish 5th at Capri-Napoli, 7th at Santa Fe-Coronda, and climbed a spot in the world rankings to 6th in the Grand Prix series. Last year, Simonazzi focused on her training and finished 5th in the Capri-Napoli Marathon.
This year, Simonazzi has her goal set on the World and European Championships and has a successful year of training behind her. She now strives to be a top contender at the events.
The 23-year-old is from Gualtieri, Italy, and enjoys watching basketball and dancing. FINIS is very excited to welcome such a graceful and accomplished athlete and is looking forward to Simonazzi’s success in the coming years.
