Bristol Central step up for Team gold

Bristol Central turned the tables on rivals Reading Royals to claim the 13-14 Yrs Team title at the 2014 ASA National Age Group Synchronised Swimming Championships in Gloucester.

Having finished less than a point behind Reading in second 12 months ago, Bristol moved up to the top step of the podium after a high-tempo and precise performance to music from the Invincibles.

Performing a routine originally choreographed for their senior team, the squad of Daniella Lloyd, Niamh Allanson-Campbell, Olivia Sissons, Georgia Denner, Graccia Gardner, Isabelle Thorpe, Kate Shortman and Jemima Langdon scored 66.5667 for their routine to finish on 129.2278.

“It’s really nice to be winning this year,” said Allanson-Campbell. “We’ve worked really hard to improve and we’ve come through quite a lot together this year so it’s a nice reward.”

Denner added: “It’s been a big step up from last year’s routine but we’ve put everything into it to try and do well today.”

Reading dropped down into silver position on 122.0999 after their routine scored 62.8333 while City of Salford claimed bronze on 116.1666 after receiving 58.4000 for their routine.
