We have compiled for you all results from the 2018 English Nationals held in Nottingham, England.
In a change that has likely gone unnoticed by a vast majority, the rules to qualify for the Olympic Games in artistic/synchronized swimming have changed. There were no big announcements from FINA, but the modifications are there.
FINA held its annual World Aquatics Gala, the “Soirée des Etoiles,” on December 2 in Sanya, China, where it recognized top athletes in each aquatic event. For synchro, Russia’s Svetlana Kolesnichenko was awarded the 2017 FINA Best Female Artistic Swimmer title, while Aleksandr Maltsev (Russia) and Giorgio Minisini (Italy) shared the FINA Best Male Artistic Swimmer award.
Two-time world champion Aleksandr Maltsev announced via Instagram that Maya Gurbanberdieva would be his new partner for the mixed duet events for the 2018 season, representing the Russian Federation.
The 2018 FINA World Series will feature 10 competitions across the world, starting in France at the beginning of March and ending in late June in Uzbekistan.
