CGTN's special series "The Chat Room - Meet the Olympians" makes a deep conversation with Arianna Fontana, who has won 45 European Championships and 8 Olympic Games medals, including a gold at her fourth Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. She is the most decorated female short track speed skater in the Olympic history.
In this episode, she shares her memories, regrets and excitements when looking back on her two Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang and Sochi, as well as her expectations for Beijing 2022 and Milano Cortina 2026 in her homeland.
Known as Italian's "short track speed legend" among sports fans in the country and beyond, Fontana is tied with retired male short track speed skaters Viktor Ahn of Russia and Apolo Anton Ohno of the United States, having gained eight Olympic Games medals. Still dreaming further and further, will Fontana create her legend with a ninth Olympics medal this time around?
