2017 FINA WORLD AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS – SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING
Russia picked up its 2nd synchro gold medal of the 2017 World Championships. Svetlana Kolsenichenko, who won solo technical routine gold on Saturday, paired with Alexandra Patskevich to win her second gold of the meet.
Duet Technical Final
This event has been held at each of the last 6 World Championships, since 2007, and Russia has won every one. Sunday’s result, however, was the first time that the margin-of-victory was less than 1 point. China, improving their score by more than a point from prelims to finals, scored 94.0775, just behind Russia’s winning 95.0515 for the closest finish in the history of this event.

Team Technical Routine
Russia positioned themselves for a 3rd gold medal with a 95.0121 preliminary in the team technical routine. Showing again the turnover in the Russian team after Rio, that’s the lowest preliminary score for Russia in the 6 editions since the team technical routine was defined as a distinct event.
