Italian swimmer Rachele Bruni on Monday dedicated her Olympic medal to her girlfriend.

Bruni won the silver medal in the 10 km marathon at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, coming in second behind Sharon van Rouwendaal of the Netherlands.

“I dedicate this victory to my family, my coach and my beloved, who have followed and supported me,” she told reporters, a reference to her girlfriend Diletta Faina, who was in Rio to watch Bruni compete.

Bruni was later asked about what it was like being the only publicly out athlete on Team Italy.

“I've always lived naturally, without problems,” she answered. “I've never done a big coming out. Undoubtedly there are people who have too many prejudices, but I live peacefully. I do not think about the prejudices. I live for myself, for my passion for swimming and for the people who love me.”
