Spain confirmed its dominance this Sunday, on the third and final day of the sixth leg of the FINA Artistic Swimming World Series organised in Madrid (ESP), with victories on free duet and free mixed duet finals.
 
The host delegation clinched as many titles -seven- as events it entered, with gold medals at the team technical routine, on Friday; at the duet technical, mixed duet technical, free combination and team free, on Saturday; and at the duet free and mixed duet free routine finals this Sunday.
 
"We leave with good feelings", head coach of the Spanish team Mayuko Fujiki said.
 
"This gives us motivation to continue working hard the next two months", added.
 
 
 
The day started with the triumph of Spain's Paula Ramirez and Sara Saldaña in the duet free routine final, in front of Belarus' Iryna Limanouskaya and Veronika Yesipovich (83,5332) and The Netherlands' Noortje and Bregje De Brouwer (82,2332).
 
The Spanish duo scored 89,9332 with a routine that was choreographed in 2016.
 
"We are proud to show a duet free routine that was performed at the Olympic Games by two stars, Gemma Mengual and Ona Carbonell", Sara Saldaña said.
 
"Gemma and Ona are very soloists and very plastic. I think our strong point is speed, strength and also expression so accelerating the music, due to our conditions, was a good decision", Paula Ramirez explained.
 
Iryna Limanouskaya and Veronika Yesipovich were also happy with the second place they achieved.
 
"We have been fighting with The Netherlands all season and today we win, so we are happy. I think that we are doing a good job in our way to Tokio 2020", Belarus' coach Anna Kameneva said.
 
Noortje De Brouwer and Bregje De Brouwer, from The Netherlands, scored 82,2332 announcing their great future.
 
"I started training with them in October and the evolution they are having is incredible. Every competition I think they are doing better. They are having a fantastic evolution and an incredible progression. They have incredible conditions and my task is to prepare them to arrive at the Olympic Games with the maximum ambition", Netherlands' coach Esther Jauma said.
 
 
Berta Ferreras and Pau Ribes were the only contenders in the mixed duet free routine final. They scored 85,0332 to give Spain another gold medal.
 
"It has been an intense championship. We are very happy with the results and with the image we have offered", Berta Ferreras said.
 
The next meet of the FINA Artistic Swimming World Series 2018 will take place in Surrey BC (CAN), May 31-June 2.
