The Cuba Swimming Federation organised, as part of the FINA Development programme, a synchronised swimming clinic that brought together 28 coaches and judges from intermediate to advanced level from December 15-19, 2012.

Top-level synchro coach and Olympic medallist Mayuko Fujiki from Japan, who currently trains the USA Synchro Team, made the trip to Cuba to share her valuable knowledge with the participants. The course focused on several aspects: choreography method and analysis, how to train duet technical elements, high jump lifts, specific dry land training and water exercises for synchro.

At the end of the clinic, Fujiki said: "I could feel the federation's passion about making the synchro level higher in their country."
