Spain and China will fight for the silver medal in synchronized swimming this Tuesday afternoon, Spanish media reported on Tuesday.
All Spanish media echo the silver medal possibility of the Spanish duet of synchronized swimming at the Olympic Games in London. The Spanish fight for the silver medal against China, which is in a better position.
The Chinese, Huang Xuechen and Liu Ou, with 96,710 points and the Spanish, Andrea Fuentes and Ona Carbonell, with 96,590 points, are separated by a little difference. Both duets will battle for the second place, because the Russians are in the first place and seem out of reach.
The Spanish have the third best mark in the final of the Olympic Games in London, something that surprised Anna Tarres, the Spanish coach, who said that the judges are scoring very low, the Spanish public television Television Espanola reported.
On the other hand, the sports newspaper Marca said that the coach was more satisfied with the swimming exercise than the swimmers.
The newspaper points out that the swimmers have made a “good performance” of “artistic merit” but it has not been reflected in the score. Marca says that everything will be decided by “details” because the differences between the Chinese and the Spanish are very small.
Television Espanola declares that the mistakes made by the two Spanish in their exercises are almost imperceptible.
Furthermore Marca states that a very important issue is the draw, because if the Spanish compete after the Chinese they will have a slight advantage. The Chinese have acted after the Spanish in the first two days of the competition.
The Spanish, who were silver medal in Beijing 2008, will attempt to win again this title this Tuesday against the Chinese, who were bronze medal at the Beijing Games.
