French Open beckons for British artistic squad

5 Mar 2020

Britain's artistic swimmers are ready to get their FINA Artistic Swimming World Series campaign underway at the French Open in Paris this weekend (Friday 6th - Sunday 8th March). 

World Championship duo Isabelle Thorpe and Kate Shortman will combine in the Technical and Free Duet events, as well as joining up with the rest of the British squad in the Combination Team category. 

Daniella Lloyd, Cerys Larsen, Cerys Hughes, Isobel Blinkhorn, Isobel Davies, Laura Turberville, Millie Costello, Daisy Gunn and Robyn Swatman are involved in all Team events throughout the weekend.

With less than five months to go before the start of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, this is the first opportunity in 2020 for Britain's athletes to go up against competitors from across the international stage. 

Last year's French Open brought success for Britain in the Team Free Combination category, as they scored 81.6667 points to take home the silver medal.

Thorpe and Shortman also came close to reaching the podium in the Duet Technical, placing fifth.
