Russia's syncrhonised swimmers win five out of six events in World Championships

24 Jul, 06:28 PM

Russia has kept up its domination in synchronized swimming as the team of Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina won gold in duet free, The Asociated Press reports.

The duo received a total score of 98.833 — all 9.9s for technical merit, 9.8s and 9.9s for artistic impression — after performing to a composite of tunes dubbed "Secret Agents," even pointing their fingers as if holding guns at one point in the routine.

The Spanish team of Gemma Mengual and Andrea Fuentes took the silver with a 98.333, while China's Jiang Tingting and Jiang Wenwen settled for bronze with 97.000.

The Russians have won five of six events in the synchro pool — every one they have entered. They will also be the favorites in the last event, team free.

Ishchenko now has nine world titles and two silver medals to her name.
