Svetlana Kolescnichenko wins confidently the solo technical routine event. The silver medal is acquired by the Spanish Ona Carbonell, the Ukrainian Anna Volosyhna to take the third step of the podium.
The press conference’s first question was related to the wonderful environment and the outside pool. All medallists pointed out the amazing setting, and thanked organizers for allowing outdoor synchronized swimming. Ona Carbonell added – “I really like the pool, the circumstances are perfect for the competition, the World Championships are amazing."
Kolescnichenko was very happy to be the first gold medallist synchronized swimmer of this year’s Championships, and then she went on to evaluate her routine.
“I feel I performed very well, I made what I planned. Everyone is trying to do their best in the team, which helps me a lot in reaching good results. Special thanks to the president of the Russian Swimming Federation, who helped us to train in the best circumstances.
Silver medallist Ona Carbonell said the music helped her a lot. The routine offers the opportunity to perform a number of spectacular moves. In her own performance she imitated “snake” gestures and she had practised a lot above and below the water.
The rhythm of Anna Voloshyna's routine was set by Ukrainian folk music.
„This not was my first medal, but it was the first time I claimed a medal in a solo event. I chose this song because it is closest to my heart. I hope I will perform better next year”.
The last question of the press conference was somewhat personal and linked to 21st lifestyle.Jjournalists asked the Russian lady whom she would send her first selfie with her medal to. She answered, to her coach, of course, but did not use her phone at all since her performance.
