Italian short track legend Arianna Fontana has won eight Winter Olympic medals for Italy, the most for any female short track skater. Only three short track skaters in today's world have won eight Olympic medals: Fontana, Apolo Ohno (male) of the US and Viktor An (male) of Russia.

Since both Ohno and An have retired, Fontana will have the record all to herself if she stands on the podium again at Beijing 2022. The 31-year-old has entered her 16th season and prepares for her fifth Winter Olympics.
