WORLD TROPHY Day 1: Spain shines on historical day for Synchro

World Trophy 2008 The sport of synchronised swimming experienced historical moments on the first day of the 3rd FINA Synchro World Trophy, taking place in Madrid (ESP) from December 5-7. In the new event created for this competition, the Thematic Duet, the world discovered a new way of displaying this already spectacular discipline. The idea of this routine is to present a programme inspired by the culture of the host country (Spain); at the same time, swimmers are allowed to wear additional accessories during their presentation. All the eight duets present at the competition ‘played’ the game, but the ‘Award of Originality’ went to the pair from Great Britain: Olivia Allison and Jenna Randall marched on the platform with flamenco shoes and, to the surprise of the spectators and judges, continued their programme in the water with those shoes! Spain and Canada were also on the more original side of the Thematic Duet, with the Iberians (Andrea Fuentes and Gemma Mengual) covering one leg and the North Americans (Tracy Little and Elise Marcotte) covering both of them. For the first time in the history of a FINA synchronised swimming competition, swimmers performed with covered legs or shoes on their feet: an image that may shock the purists of the discipline, but that undoubtedly opens a wide range of new opportunities in the discipline. For the television crews and the photographers present in Madrid, it was certainly a pleasure to capture these moments; for the spectators and TV viewers, it surely constitutes a very positive and encouraging dimension in synchronised swimming.
