Benedetta Pilato on New Training Bases in Olympic Year: “It’s a step that you need to grow”

Pilato said it was a hard time to be racing for her as she is in a heavy training block but overall she was happy with her performances.

Pilato also spoke on her move at the beginning of the season from Taranto to Torino. Since she was finished with high school, Pilato wanted the experience of living on her own and in a new city.
