European Artistic Swimming Championships - Glasgow 2018 D5

Duet Free Final

Britain's synchro duet Kate Shortman and Isabelle Thorpe have scored their second highest international score of the year - and highest in senior competition.

The pair, who have been focusing on junior competitions throughout 2018 finished 11th in the Duet Free Final, scoring 82.0000.

The move from junior to senior has been difficult throughout 2018 as there are a number of more difficult elements to incorporate into routines, but the young Brits have consistently made finals.

But Team Leader Karen Thorpe is optimistic about their progression after this competition. She said: "The duet will be starting to train in a centralised programme as of September when they start to study at the same school.
"The school has organised the study of their A-levels in the morning and have allowed them to use the school facilities to train in the afternoon. 

"2019 is set to be a crucial year for the duet to make improvements and start on their quest for Olympic qualification in 2020."
 

Solo Final
 

City of Bristol's Kate Shortman concluded Britain's Glasgow 2018 programme with a ninth place finish.

The talented 16-year-old scored 84.7333 in the solo free routine final, with Russia's Svetlana Kolesnichenko (94.9333) taking gold, Italy's Linda Cerruti (92.5000) in second and Ukrainian Yelyzaveta Yakhno (92.1333) in third.

It caps of a consistent meet for the British team who have been transitioning from junior to senior level competition, and saw them make finals in all events.

Kate will now await her GCSE results next week before joining duet partner Isabelle Thorpe as part of  a centralised programme where they start to study at the same school, and train together on a more focused basis.
