Jenna Randall showed her true potential on the world stage as she finished in eighth place in the Solo Technical preliminary and secured her chance to compete in her first World Championship final.
The British Gas Synchronised Swimmer hasn’t competed in the Solo event since the European Championships last year and she took to the podium with confidence and grace.
She looked strong as she dived into the water to begin her routine and she instantly impressed with her speed through the water.
Olympian, Randall, showed improved height and stamina through her routine and she finished to scores of 9s. She took a total score of 89.500 to finish in eighth place overall.
“That was my highest score in a solo competition,” Randall said. “It felt ok but my combined spin could have been better. I know I can perform it better and so it was disappointing not to do that here.
“I was aiming for a final position so that is great and I really wanted to get 9s across the board but the majority of them are there and I can aim for that in the final.”
The British Gas Synchronised Swimming Head Coach Tatiana Tsym commented: “I am very impressed and very glad with Jenna’s performance. For the final I would like to see the execution increasing towards the end of the routine. This is a difficult job but Jenna is very close to achieving this.”
