Hampson makes it two with 15-18yrs Solo gold

Greta Hampson of City of Bristol secured her second gold medal of the competition, snatching the title by the narrowest of margins on day two of the Synchro National Age Group Champs.

Hampson had been in second place following the Figures competition. However, she nailed her Solo to jump up to the top spot, finishing less than 0.02 points ahead of Rushmoor’s Danielle Cooper.

Her routine had some lovely changes in pace, which was complemented by the Latin-style song choice. She scored an impressive 71.2667 for her routine to Sway (Mucho Mambo) by John Tesh.

This took her total to 140.9697 to add the solo to her duet gold from day one.

“It feels really good to get a second gold,” said Hampson, who had finished fourth in the Solo 12 months ago.

“I went out there and tried my hardest. I knew if I wanted to win I was going to have to give it my all.

“So I wasn’t really thinking about winning, I was thinking about just going out there and doing the best I can do.”

Cooper claims second silver

Cooper also caught the eye of the judges as she scored 70.8000 for her routine, inspired by music from Schinder’s List.

The Rushmoor swimmer, who also won Duet silver in Gloucester, finished on 140.9515.

Meanwhile, Hampson’s duet partner Daniella Lloyd took the final place on the podium. She was the only other swimmer to breach 70 points for her Free Routine, scoring 70.3333 to take bronze with 138.0000 overall.
