Team GB’s Jenna Randall and Olivia Federici have booked their spot in tomorrow’s Olympic synchronised swimming final after finishing ninth in the qualifying stage at the Aquatics Centre earlier today.
The duo, who lay ninth after Sunday’s technical routine, performed well as they were awarded 44.550 for technical merit and 44.240 in the free routine to give a total of 88.790 and a combined total of 176.890.
Randall said: “We’ve got a few things to work on for tomorrow, it wasn’t one of our best efforts. We want to improve the technical aspect of our routine and make that perfect for tomorrow.
“We’ve been putting in a lot of hard work and hours to be there, we do 45 hours a week and I think our reputation is improving, we want to work towards higher marks.”
Federici added: “We want to go back home, look at the video and give our best performance tomorrow so we really want to give everything we’ve got.”
The pair will perform the same routine tomorrow at 3pm in the Duet Free Final after they became the first Team GB Duet to reach the Olympic final in 20 years.
