Valentina Vezzali


Born: 14th February, 1974.

Italian fencer Valentina Vezzali is probably one of the top female Olympic champions in her discipline.

The five-time gold medalist came first place in the Games in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008, and has a host of other titles.

Her achievements led to her being named a member of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Italy in 2000. Now that's what we call a high achiever!
