FINA World Championships 2011 - Synchronised Swimming Day 1

Commonwealth silver medallist Jenna Randall showed her potential on the world stage by impressing with her strong performance in the Solo Technical at the World Championships in Shanghai. The Solo technical routine, a non-Olympic event, featured 34 countries, during which athletes must perform six required elements in a given sequence in only two minutes. Scores are given for overall impression and execution, with prominence given to the latter.

Olympian Randall has been working on the intensity of her routine at a number of training camps through the season and tonight showed her hard work paying off.

She performed to Hallelujah and the slow routine required precision and sharp moves which she executed well. She finished in eighth place overall with a score of 89.000. See video below (4m 12s flashplayer required).
