SCOLIOSIS
She has a curved back due to scoliosis and needs to use a corset. It was not severe at the beginning, but by the time she was 17 it had gotten worse. "It was not easy to accept the corset, but it allowed me to continue practising my passion. Little by little I realised that I didn't have to feel embarrassed. I suffered but I was able to achieve great things despite the scoliosis. I have always worn the corset. Even at the Olympics when we won bronze!" (ginnasticaritmicaitaliana.it, 15 Oct 2014)
