Women's Duet Technical Routine final went true to form. Russian duo Svetlana Kolesnichenko and Alexandra Patskevichwas clinched gold, Chinese twins Jiang Tingting and Jiang Wenwen finished second, Anna Voloshyna and Yelyzaveta Yakhno Ukrainian duo claimed bronze.

Svetlana Kolesnichenko could top the podium for the second time after clinching her second gold at the World Championships in Budapest. At the press conference she and her team told they did not aim for the gold primarily, yet they hope their team could draw strength from this achievement.

"We didn’t have any specific expectations, we focused on doing our best and aimed at executing divers perfectly. This gold medal demonstrates that we are successful and capable of achieving a high level. Although Aleksandra and I (Svetlana – ed. comment) are not in the team this time we hope our gold medal will motivate them and we wish good luck to the Russian team."

The Chinese duo was extremely happy with the silver.

“Many thanks to all the fans, we did what we could. This has been our best performance so far at this edition of the World Championship. We are here for the first time, we like it very much here, it is very nice”

Also, they talked about their plans after Word Championships.

“Since we're not young anymore, we’re not preparing for the Olympics. It depends on our physical condition.”

Bronze medal duo member Voloshyna praised her partner.

“I am always happy when our team achieves top finishes, and this year I have a new duet partner. She is highly experienced, she clinched gold at the World Junior Synchro Swimming Championships.”
