Improvement from Brits to finish 12th in Team Free

26 July 2013

The new-look British Gas GBR Synchronised Swimming Team improved their score from the prelims to finish 12th in the Team Free final on day seven of the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona.

With four of the eight British swimmers competing in their first major championship final, the Brits improved from their 82.510 in the prelims to score 82.570 in the final.

Swimming the same themed routine as the Olympics, the team stepped up their performance to impress the judges. The young team took to the starting podium with confidence knowing they wanted to end their campaign on a high. 

The eight athletes worked on a series of corrections after the prelims and then showed an improved performance in the final. They demonstrated good height and speed in the high paced routine. 

The Peter Pan routine was a favourite in London and is still popular with the young team.

"I think the team work so well together," Lucass said. "From prelims, we reviewed the performance, found out what we needed to improve and then we really worked hard to do that in the last few days. 

"I think that's shown in our swim, especially in our marks so it's really good result for us. The team felt calmer and before we swam, I could tell everyone was focus and that really showed in the swim and in our marks."

Asha Randall said "When we're at the training pool, we're working hard then when we get away, it's all about recovering as best as you can. It's been another amazing experience here - I've loved every Worlds I've been to and this was great again."
