14 June 2015 / 09:06

Team GB synchronised swimming team leader Karen Thorpe insists the best is yet to come ahead of the battle for medals at Baku 2015.

Sunday saw the figures portion of the event take place, with Jorja Brown the top placing Brit in 54th with a score of 71.3455.

Next up was Genevieve Randall 16 places further back, her score of 70.0727 leaving her 13th overall following Saturday’s free routine, meaning she is first reserve for Tuesday’s solo final.

Elsewhere, however, Team GB, have qualified for the three other medal showdowns and Thorpe believes her youngsters will continue to give everything they have got in order to move up the rankings.

“Genevieve did well to come in 13th place out of 21,” Thorpe said. “She did a good job, it was going to be very close so we will go back and inspect the results, but in all the other events we are through to the final.

“We need to go back and analyse how we did in the prelims and then focus on the most obvious thing that we can improve on for the final for the judges so that we can try and up our scores a bit.

“That is going to be our main focus, just trying to improve our scores.”
