Fortunately, more and more athletes are supporting beneficial causes for the health of the planet and one of these is certainly Federica Brignone. The career of the Italian ski champion has 27 career podiums including 10 victories, 8-second places, and 9 third places.
We live in crazy landscapes, beautiful places and sometimes outside the world. The mountain then continues to change and with it the slopes and snow, you never get bored.

Federica Brignone and her relationship with the coach and training
The coach gives you feedback on the skis day after day to help you understand what you are doing, sometimes the feelings do not reflect the facts. In athletic preparation it's fundamental, I notice the difference: it spurs me on, motivates me and only makes me think about what I must do, so every day I can give my all and work harder and harder.
Federica Brignone started with artistic gymnastics and then I also did figure skating, athletics, climbing, golf, and tennis.
Liquid trajectories: when Federica Brignone skis at the bottom of the sea
Disconcerting data on marine pollution
- In 8 years, there will be 1 ton of plastic every three fishes
- We have gone from 15 million tons in 1964 to 311 million in 2014
- The drama is that the estimate will be doubled in twenty years
- Today, 95% of plastic packaging is lost after its first rapid use,
- 40 years after the first recycling symbol was launched, only 14% of the packs are recycled.
We need to rethink the plastics economy and totally change our approach, living together in the best way for the survival of the planet.
Liquid trajectories - Federica Brignone's project to protect the environment
"As happened last summer in Lipari, I willingly made myself available to the project this year to dive in the water with my competition outfit to tell you, through the photos of Giuseppe, the terrible feeling of being surrounded and suffocated by plastic with enormous difficulties of movement. Unfortunately, this is what the fish, the turtles and the inhabitants of our seas are experiencing... We must all work to stop this terrible catastrophe."
