Killman, a 2012 Olympian, finished with 86.6000 points, as did France’s Margaux Emmanuelle Chretien. Russia’s Natalia Ishchenko won the event.
“Mary had a great swim today, better than prelims,” U.S. national team coach Myriam Glez said. “She corrected everything she had to improve on. So everybody is quite happy.”
