The USA synchronised swimmer team was the last one to qualify for the final of the Team Free routine.
Their score was 82.9667, which helped them to finish just above Belarus with 82.5333 points.
“We have some things to improve on and we really hope that we will have the opportunity to do so” – said the girls right after their results were announced.
“It is good to be here, we really enjoy the venue, it is the first time in this city for us. The weather is great, we used to swim outside, the people are nice and overall it is a great experience for all of us.”
“We all have like our own rituals to get ready before coming out to the pool, mostly it is cheering up each other. As a team, we all take two breaths before walking out and then putting our hands together and saying “1-2-3, Team!”. It helps us focus more on each other.”
