(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 25 – “I am close to the swimmer #Linda Cerruti, made the subject of shameful sexist comments on social media that I strongly condemn. This is not acceptable!”.
With this tweet, the undersecretary with responsibility for Sport Valentina Vezzali expresses her solidarity with the synchronized swimming champion Linda Cerruti, of whom she also posts a photo while competing in the water. The 28-year-old from Savona to celebrate the eight medals won at the European Championships in Rome had posted a photo of her ‘vertically’, upside down and split, with the eight medals hanging from her legs. For this she had unleashed vulgar and sexist comments that left most people stunned, first of all the athlete herself, who had spoken of “vulgar and macho horde”. (HANDLE).
