Randall and Federici ready for first competition of the year
22nd May 2013
Olympic finalists Jenna Randall and Olivia Federici will make their seasonal bow at this weekend’s European Synchronised Swimming Champions Cup in Savona, Italy.
Competing for the first time since finishing ninth at London 2012, the British pair will be performing their Olympic routines in the Duet event.
This is the first time that this Duet is competing internationally since the Olympics
Having both recovered from minor injuries earlier this year, Randall and Federici are now ready to kick-start their international season which will culminate with the World Championships in Barcelona.
The Champions Cup will also be former Japan and China head coach Masayo Imura’s first competition as coaching consultant to Randall and Federici since her appointment last month.
National Performance Director Biz Price commented: “This is the first time that this Duet is competing internationally since the Olympics.
“There have been a couple of niggles that they have had since the Games which prevented them from competing previously but they have now recovered and are ready to go.
“It is going to be good to see where Jenna and Olivia are at this point in the season ahead of the World Championships.
“It is the first competition that Masayo is coaching at and I am looking forward to working alongside her again and see her make an impact on both the Duet and Solo routines.”
