Italian swimmer Federica Pellegrini has raised €66,000 (£58,000/$72,000) for a hospital in Bergamo treating COVID-19 patients through her live auction.
Items that were up for sale included four signed photographic panels and numerous pieces of swimwear.
Her 2019 World Championships warm-up kit went for €5,100 (£4,500/$5,600), with a swimsuit that she wore at that competition fetching a fifth of the warm-up kit price.
Pellegrini won gold in the 200 metres freestyle race at the 2019 World Championships.
Her goggles from the Beijing 2008 Olympics went for €4,550 (£3,975/$4,945).
Ho organizzato un’asta online di 59 cimeli - sportivi e non – il cui ricavato sarà interamente devoluto all’ospedale di Bergamo ASST Papa Giovanni XXIII. ❤️❤️❤️— Federica Pellegrini (@mafaldina88) April 13, 2020
Questa asta avverrà martedì 14 aprile, dalle ore 15.30… https://t.co/aS0BoIj3fo
Also among the top sellers was a Rossorame bomber jacket from when she was a judge on Italia's Got Talent, with two of her swimming caps also going for more than €1,000 (£875/$1,090).
Pellegrini had announced the auction on March 30, aiming to benefit one of Italy's hardest-hit areas.
There have been more than 24,000 COVID-19 deaths in Italy.
Other swimmers have made similar gestures, with Britain's Adam Peaty raffling off a gold-medal-winning swimsuit to contribute £12,800 ($16,000/€14,700) towards British efforts to combat coronavirus.
