Fina World Championship 2013: Russia completes golden sweep after free combination win


AKUATIK INDONESIA, In the last final on the programme, the number-1 nation in the sport delivered a flawless performance at the Palau Sant Jordi, obtaining their fourth title in the event with a total 97.060. Proving imperial in all seven routines, Russia completed their second sweep of gold in-a-row at World Championships (also pocketing the competition’s best team Trophy).

Spain, whose team took a disappointing fourth in Shanghai in 2011 behind Canada, regained second spot, 10 years after their first success in the free combination, also a silver, at the inaugural edition of the event at home. In 2005 and 2009 respectively, Spain completed a set of world medals in the event, winning bronze in Montreal and gold in Rome.


Performing on a medley of Elvis Presley, the host squad presented a superb routine, offering an astonishing array of lifts and throws, frequently punctuated by bursts of applause and wild cheering, for a total score of 94.620
