Synchronised swimming – Solo free routine, final


Gold medal

Natalia Ishchenko, Russia, 96.4000

“We didn’t change anything in the solo routine as in the Olympic year we have to focus on the events in the Games programme. So it was the same one I performed in Kazan, though I think this time it was even a bit better. I expected to earn this gold and I can tell you I was much more nervous in the morning when we presented our new duet routine with Svetlana [Romashina] for the first time. It was very technical so it took a lot of energy. But it’s a good feeling that it was fine and our coach was satisfied both in the morning and in the afternoon.”

Silver medal

Anna Voloshyna, Ukraine, 93.4000

“I think today I managed to perform my routine even better than in the prelims and this is a good feeling.”

Bronze medal

Linda Cerruti, Italy, 89.4333

“At first I was afraid that I would get two penalty points because at the beginning I went one second over the limit set for the podium presentation. But I received only one, so I’m happy to get the medal.”
