Kiseleva: Russian synchronised swimmers keep everything in their hands

The Russian team is still the leader in the world of synchronised swimming, said the three-time Olympic champion Maria Kiseleva.

The competition in synchronised swimming finished in Kazan on Tuesday. The Russian team won all four gold medals. "We have a new solo, a new duo; half of the girls in the team who have joined the experienced Olympic champions are new. Perhaps everything is as it should be. The most important thing is that they have everything in their hands, they prove their competitiveness. We see that the level of the Russian team is fundamentally different, they are three heads above the others," Kiseleva said to reporters of R-Sport.

On Monday Svetlana Romashina and Svetlana Kolesnichenko won the gold medal in the duet competition, and the victory was also won in the group competition. On Tuesday Romashina became the first in the tournament of solo swimmers, and the Russian group won a victory in combination.
