Day 3 - Free Combination

Russian Team

Following the win of Spain on the team event, there was some anticipation regarding the last day of the competition, namely about how the Russian would recover and still show they are the best of the world in this aquatic discipline. After gathering her ‘troops’ on Saturday (the day they lost for Spain), Tatiana Pokrovskaya (the head coach of the Russian squad) installed within them a new dose of concentration and motivation. And it worked perfectly for the Free Combination event. Displaying a solid routine that was both technically perfect and artistically (what was judged in Rio) interesting, Russia got two ‘10’ from the judges and were assured the victory.

Day 2 - Team

After threatening Russian supremacy in duet, Spain finally got it! In the team event, the Spaniards performed the same programme as at the 2007 FINA World Championships in Melbourne (in March) and conquered the gold in front of powerful Russia. It was the first time at this level that the Spaniards beat their rivals, and in what a fantastic way! Performing after Russia – as always almost perfect in technical terms (but in Rio only the artistic impression counted) – the group of Anna Tarrés delighted spectators and judges with its programme (‘Africa’, a routine inspired by the tribal dances).

Day 1 - Duet

Even being Olympic, World and European champions, Anastasia Ermakova and Anastasia Davydova had one of the least comfortable victories of recent years. In the duet competition, the Russians totalled 98.334 points, but were closely followed by Spain, with 98.000. The bronze medal went to the USA, beating other medal favourites, which was the duet of Japan.After almost perfect programmes in their last major appearances – namely the 2007 FINA World Championships in Melbourne (AUS) -, the Anastasias were clearly the duet to beat in this World Trophy. With a format that only includes direct finals and marks for artistic impression, the Russians executed a very strong programme, but it was marked by some minor visible mistakes – very rare for these two champions. The notes of the five judges of the competition confirmed that – “just” two ‘9.9’ and three ‘9.8’ for a pair that accumulated 42 ‘tens’ since 2000 in world competitions.
