world trophy: China repeats triumph in Mexico

RENANG INDAH. China's spearhead Xuechen Huang and the team were at their best, sealing an outstanding three days at the 8th FINA Synchronised Swimming World Trophy with a second straight title in Mexico City (MEX).

Capturing gold in the Thematic Duet, Free Team and Free Combination, the Chinese imposed their lead from the start to reach top spot, securing the gap to overtake its European rivals - Russia, Spain and Ukraine.

The Ukrainians, including strong prospect Lolita Ananasova, leapfrogged team Spain, with at its helm multi-World and Olympic medallist Ona Carbonell, to finish second overall - a remarkable leap forward for a country which keeps rising ever-higher in the ranks of the world's top synchro competitors. Host Mexico placed fourth while Egypt took fifth.

Russia, Spain and Ukraine had to share a surprise victory in the Synchro Highlight Routine, all tying for first with a total 94.6670.

10 teams took part in the spectacular event: China, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Ukraine and USA.
