Lloyd and Hampson win national Duet Tech title

City of Bristol continued their golden start to the Swim England Synchronised Swimming National Championships as Daniella Lloyd and Greta Hampson landed the Duet Tech title.

Hampson had already topped the podium in the opening event, impressing to win Tech Solo gold by seven points.

She and Lloyd won the Tech Duet crown by a similar margin, edging past the 70 mark to score 70.0634.

The result was made more impressive by the fact that the pair are a relatively new partnership, coming together for the first time to win 15-18 Years Duet gold at last year’s National Age Group Championships.

Both swimmers were part of the British team who finished sixth at March’s World Series event in France.
