Career best at worlds has Randall and Federici on cloud nine

Jenna Randall admitted she could have hardly asked for more after she and Olivia Federici claimed a career best finish at the World Championships in Barcelona.

Synchronised swimmers Randall and Federici came together for the duet technical competition in Spain and placed eighth with a score of 87.800.

That marked their best ever placing in the event at what is their fourth World Championships and was a slight improvement on their preliminary score of 87.700.

And Randall, who placed ninth in the solo technical and will return to the water on day three for solo free preliminaries, insisted she was more than satisfied with the result.

“We were really focusing on the element execution and we wanted to do better than we did in prelims especially with the crane element which is halfway through the routine,” said Randall.

“It felt really good and synchronised, we felt really as a unit in the water, which is fantastic. We haven’t really felt like that in a tech programme for many years, so it was a really good swim.”
