Baku 2015: Dawkins content after synchro swim prelims

13 June 2015 / 12:59

British synchronised swim coach Katie Dawkins declared herself happy but admitted there was work to do after Team GB progressed to the free combination final at the European Games in Baku.

As expected Russia, Spain and the Ukraine dominated the top positions while Dawkins's youthful team ranked tenth in the preliminaries, with a score of 74.900.

"Presentation probably could have been better in the second half, that’s what we really need to work on and we know that," said Dawkins.

"That’s just a fitness thing, getting the girls to train the routine as much as possible and do presentation at training all the time, which we don’t always do. That’s something to focus on. 

"The patterns, which were a big focus for us, were much better. So we’re really happy, we’ve just got a few things to sort out for the final."
