Greta Hampson defends Tech Solo title at Synchro Nationals

Greta Hampson successfully defended her Technical Solo title at the 2019 Swim England National Synchronised Swimming Junior and Senior Championships.

The City of Leeds athlete won her maiden senior national title in this competition at her first attempt last year and continued her rise with another dominant display.

Hampson won with an impressive total of 72.5320 points, more than three points clear at the top of the final rankings.

Now a senior member of the Great Britain squad, Hampson has flourished since winning the 15-18 Years National Age Group title in 2017.

It could be the first of many trips to the podium for Hampson, who will also compete in the Free Solo and all team events in Nottingham this weekend.

Costello steps up

Hampson’s City of Leeds teammate Millie Costello once again climbed the rankings to claim the silver medal, winning the junior national title in the process.

Costello was fifth in the National Age Group Championships in 2017 and won senior bronze at the nationals last year.

She stepped up a place on the podium, rounding out the competition with 68.9813 – more than four points better than her 2018 performance.

Another GB star – Reading Royals’ Victoria Usher – won the bronze medal, claiming 67.3446 points.
