Brown and Randall fill Price with hope for the future

National Performance Director Biz Price believes Great Britain are in good shape for success this year after Jorja Brown and Genevieve Randall narrowly missed out on medals at the Synchronised Swimming Championships in Ponds Forge.

In the international Junior Figures competition Great Britain’s Brown finished fourth with 74.1600 points while teammate Randall was fifth with a score of 73.1927.

Jacqueline Simoneau of Canada took the top spot with an impressive score of 80.7418 with Dutch swimmers Liza Foppen and Mirthe Kuperus claiming silver and bronze respectively with scores of 75.5782 and 74.6618.

And after both Brown and Randall came agonisingly close to silverware, Price is convinced the future is bright.

“It was disappointing not to get a medal in the Figures, especially as Jorja came fourth and was only 0.5 points away from bronze,” she said.

"But this is a good benchmark for us to look at where we are against other countries like the Netherlands and the scores are really encouraging for the Synchro World Cup later this year and mean that our girls are likely to be some of the top athletes at that competition."
