Synchro swimmers secure ninth in team technical

6 Aug 2018

Britain's synchronised swimmers have secured another top 10 finish at Glasgow 2018.

Britain's team, made up of Millie Costello, Greta Hampson, Cerys Larsen, Daniella Lloyd, Daisy Rushton, Harriette Smith, Abi Taylot and Torrie Usher, scored 78.0072 in the final of the team technical routine.

The team, whose youngest member Daisy Rushton is only 15, held their own against older, more established teams with their routine, which was choreographed by Italian Stefania Speroni.

Team Leader Karen Thorpe said: "The team had a good swim and they gave it their all.

"This was really our first senior competition at this level since 2016, so we are very pleased with the team result and ranking."

The theme of the routine was Celtic, fitting for the Scottish location, with music by Lindsey Stirling.

The Synchro swimming programme finishes tomorrow at Scotstoun, with the Duet Free and Solo Free Finals.
