Russian pair near perfect yet again

The Russian duo have dominated today’s Synchronised Swimming action, with their free routine judged near perfect.
Natalia Ischenko and Svetlana Romashina compete in the Duets Synchronised Swimming free routine preliminary on Day 10 of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Russia has been the nation to beat in Synchronised Swimming since winning their first gold at Sydney 12 years ago and are the clear favourites at London 2012.
Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina concluded a nigh-on perfectly executed, haunting routine to the music of the film Sleepy Hollow today.
Their technical routine was judged to have been just 1.800 off perfection yesterday and today the judges awarded them a total of 98.600.
When combined with yesterday’s mark, that gave them an overall result of 196.800 out of 200. China go into the final in second place, with Spain third.
Ischenko said: ‘Today we are maybe about 90 per cent happy. We have small things to fix for the final. I hope the judges did not see the mistakes our coach saw.’
