Jenna Randall and Olivia Federici moved neither up nor down in the synchronised swimming duet free final at the World Championships – admitting they were satisfied with how they delivered their routine.
Randall and Federici, who claimed a career-best eighth in the duet technical final on Sunday night, went into the free duet medal showdown in ninth after being awarded a score of 87.680 in the preliminaries.
And that was where they stayed as the judges marked them down in the final, awarding 87.180 for their ‘Ravens on the Tower of London’ routine, originally choreographed for last year’s Olympics.
They finished eighth in the exact same event at the last World Championships in Shanghai in 2011 but Randall was content with the way they went about bettering the routine in the final in Barcelona.
“We thought it went really well,” said Randall, who has endured a busy time of things in Spain having also competed in the solo technical and free events. “We always give it 100 per-cent every single time.
“We were really trying to focus on the small little corrections we had from the preliminaries and I think we were able to do it so we are both very pleased.”
