Following the figures section of the competition, attentions turned to the routines.
Flamingos that are out of this world
Competing in their very first competition having been put together as a new team in September, the girls swam a challenging space-themed routine to Katy Perry’s
Extra-terrestrial I think we can all agree
they looked fantastic in their galaxy print suits and starry head pieces. The routine scored high on difficulty with a one judge awarding 5.9! Well done Flamingos we
can’t wait to see what you have in store for us at the Combo Cup!
From Dolphins with love
Next up were our fabulous Dolphin Bond girls that treated us to a Spectre(cal) of artistic and acrobatic treats with almost (Dr) no mistakes. The Dolphins are another
squad that have been put together this season and it’s clear to see they are a match-made in heaven. Coached by Lis Holland, Jess McEachron and Linda Wallace the dolphins have a fabulous support
network behind them and its clear to see they are a rising force for the future… not just for your eyes only… for them, the world is not enough… OK we’ll stop now.
Aurora plays the game
Our next fabulous team to take the stage was Aurora squad with their exciting ‘Jumanji’ routine. With plenty of highlights this routine easily caught the crowd’s
attention (as did the fabulous green suits) and it was great to see the girls’ hard work pay off. Well done to coaches Collette Crow and Jenny Batten for finalising such a well-polished team in such
a quick turnaround. This group of girls are not to be missed!
Rio’s breathe fire into the competition
Over in the 12 and under division the first of Kingston’s three (yes three!) teams took to the pool. This artistic and challenging routine to the ‘How to train your
dragon’ soundtrack was put together by swimmer and coach Rachael Stevens. With seemingly no nerves the girls pulled off a confident and polished performance allowing them to score highly in artistic
impression. Well done Rios we can’t wait to see you swim again!
The Marlins like to move it (move it)
The Marlins requested tropical and jungle vibes from their coaches, and so the “Madagascar” routine was born. The girls pulled off an artistic and clean routine showing
strength and strong synchronisation with team lifts, partner lifts and double arm eggbeater. The tropical theme was easily portrayed by this energetic and fun-loving group of girls. One judge caught
the bug and awarded a 5.7 for Artistic Impression. Keep an eye out for these girls, next up is the Combo Cup!
Swordfish sail to the podium once again!
Last but by no means least our fantastic Swordfish team have made it two in two years with a second BRONZE medal at the London
regionals. This year this energetic bunch performed a fun and athletic routine to songs from the hit film ‘Sing’. The girls showed their range with multiple lifts, fast-paced hybrids and sassy Ariana
Grande arm movements to scoop their well-deserved BRONZE. Coached by Head Coach Collette Crow there is no stopping these girls, we’re looking forward to their
performance next month at the Combo Cup.
Duets and solos
Who didn’t love Livy Crow’s emotionally charged solo. The lyrical routine really stood out on the day, with difficult double leg hybrids and some fantastically
creative arm movements Liv stole the show, scoring highly for execution, artistic impression and difficulty (with no less than eight marks in the 6s, and even a 7.4). That shiny GOLD medal looks good on you Liv!
Our lovely duets Ellie & Amelia and Livy & Carys bagged joint BRONZE for their fabulous performances. Despite some issues
with the underwater speaker these girls remained professional to perform impressive routines. Well done girls, we couldn’t be prouder.
As if full time careers, coaching junior squads and helping to run the club wasn’t enough, Kingston Synchro masters division train tirelessly week in week out with
their coach Collette Crow to perfect solos, duets, combination and free teams. Here are some Exec Committee bios to help you get to know them better.
