FINA World Championships 2013: Russian duo rocks duet free final

AKUATIK INDONESIA, Using a heavy metal piece by Metallica, defending champion Svetlana Romashina and new partner Svetlana Kolesnichenko from Russia went off the beaten track, delivered a very original programme and finished strongly in the duet free, scoring 97.680. China’s Jiang sisters waved farewell with a second silver-medal winning performance in Barcelona and a total 95.350 points, closely followed by local hopes Ona Carbonell and Margalida Crespi, who secured the bronze with an overall 94.990.

With this win, Romashina pocketed her third straight title in the event (which she won with Natalia Ishchenko in Rome and Shanghai) and fourth title in Barcelona (after winning the solo events and duet technical), lifting Russia’s duet gold total to 11.

Capturing her 15th gold medal (12 of them at Worlds and three at Olympics), Romashina is the third most “golden” synchro swimmer in history behind former teammates Ishchenko (19 gold) and Anastasia Davydova (18 gold). Her incredible roll of honour includes nothing but gold.
