Alessia’s first National competition was in 2011, when she participated to the Italian Championship in Turin, where she earned a second-place in 2 out of the 3 scheduled disciplines.
One year later, Alessia is called for her first international competition, where she earns exceptional placings.
2013 is the year when Alessia becomes World Champion for the first time, in Kazan, during her first time joining the World Championship. In the same competition, Alessia also won a silver and a bronze medal in the other 2 scheduled disciplines.
The first Indoor World Record has to wait until 2015. The media attention dedicated to Alessia’s extraordinary accomplishments (5 medals between gold and silver, indoor and outdoor), strongly contributed to increasing the general interest in freediving.
2016 is a non-stop year for the world champion, who wins three gold medals and respective World Records in Dynamics without fins, Dynamics with fins and Dynamics with monofin.
In 2017, after the record in the Bahamas, Alessia became the “deepest woman in the world”, beating for three times Natalia Molchanova’s hitherto unbeaten result, which had lasted for 6 years.
Even today, thanks to her -113 m in Constant Weight achieved in 2019 in Roatan, Alessia maintains the affectionate title that the press and her many fans have entrusted to her: the Queen of the Abyss.
