Randall and Allison impress in Montreal

29 Nov 2009 07:54

The British Gas Synchro Team competing in Montreal, Canada at the FINA World Trophy looked good on the first day of competition which saw them compete in the Highlight Team and Thematic Duet Routines.

Olympians Jenna Randall and Olivia Allison took to the water in the Thematic Duet, which is to be performed in the style of the country hosting the competition, and performed in polar bear shaped snow shoes.
 
Randall and Allison competed in Flamenco shoes at the 2008 FINA World Trophy and extended their idea this year. The routine was a crowd pleaser with most of the audience clapped along to the duo’s performance.
 
The British Gas Synchro Swimmers finished their routine to scores ranging from 9.1 – 9.3 and had a total artistic score of 91.667 to secure seventh place. They finished over a point away from Italy who took eighth place.
 
The Highlight Team saw Randall and Allison rested and also the international senior debut of Katie Clark and Yvette Baker. The Routine went well and the athletes showed their improved strength and speed in the water.
 
They received scores of 8.7 -8.9 and secured a strong eighth place with a total of 88.333 ahead of their close rivals Brazil.
 
At the top of the leader board is the home nation Canada. This is the first time that Canada has taken the top spot in a team event since 1986 and the first time that they have ever led the Duet.
