Federica Pellegrini re-claimed her World title in the 200 free last summer, but she insisted Saturday evening at the TYR Pro Swim Series meet in Atlanta that she has no plans to resume swimming the 200 free.

Through a translator, Pellegrini explained in a video interview why she has decided to pursue the 100 free and the backstroke events, and she explained what her goals are and how she is seeking to have more fun with swimming as she pushes towards a fifth Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.
