The national artistic swimming team qualified for the world final with the second best performance

With an impressive performance in the Mixed Artistic Team heats, our national artistic swimming team advanced to the event finals at the 20th World Aquatics Championships in Fukuoka, having garnered the second best result of all participants.

The national technical swimming team made a serious bid for a medal at the World Aquatics Championships in Fukuoka, after qualifying for the team technical program.

Maria Elie Elzigozi, Eleni Fragaki, Cristalinia Gialama, Zoe Carangelo, Maria Carapanagiotto, Dani Karuri, Iphigenia Kromedaki and Sofia Malkogiorgo appeared in second place with 261.7013 points. Apart from China, which was the first by a large margin with a score of 304.3992 b. The battle for the podium looks very open and everything will be decided in the final match, which will take place at noon on Tuesday (18/7, 13:30 Greek time). What is certain is that the Greek gymnasts proved that poor performance in acrobatics was merely an arc and that they could claim the distinction.

Italy (251.5379 px), USA (248.7274 px), Israel (247.1383 px) and Spain (246.7484 px) follow by a narrow margin behind Greece, while Japan and Ukraine lag a bit behind, but they are traditional powers of the sport and no one can exclude them from medal contention beforehand.

We remind you that on Sunday (16.07) noon (13:30) Evangelia Plataniotis / Sofia Malkogeorgou will compete in the artistic duet final.
