Gemo qualified for her first Olympic appearance in London 2012.[1] At the 2012 European Aquatics Championships, despite having swum the 7th time in the heat, was not admitted to the semifinals, because each nation could only have a maximum of two athletes in the semifinals and three Italian athletes had qualified.[2]

She is the Italian record holder in the 50 metre long course and 50 and 100 metre short course backstroke.
