RIO DE JANEIRO, August 16./TASS/. Russia’s Natalya Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina have grabbed gold in the women’s duet synchronized swimming, becoming four-time Olympic champions.
In the final duets free routine they scored 98.5333. The combined score of the free routines and technical routines is 194.9910.
As of the present moment, Russian athletes have won 12 gold, 12 silver and 14 bronze medals.
The Olympic Games in Brazil’s Rio will end on August 21.
Ishchenko told journalists Russian synchronized duets must be three times better than their rivals if they want to win.
"Our coaches liked our performance in the final. The marks were high, so everything is fine. Every year is hard for us; the Olympic year was also difficult," Ishchenko said.
"We work a lot. We felt enormous responsibility prior to the Olympic Games. Russia has strong opponents and everybody expects Russian synchronized duets to win. We should live up to these expectations if we once set the bar so high. We should be three times better than our rivals," she stressed.
