Emily Armstrong places 6th in solo free at FINA World Junior Artistic Swimming Championships
Synchro Canada – Budapest, HUN – Emily Armstrong, from Toronto, ON, was the first Canadian to dive in at the 2018 World Junior Artistic Swimming Championships in Budapest, Hungary. Taking part in both the solo free and solo technical events, Emily delivered 3 solid performances against a very strong international field with competitors from 32 countries.
In the solo free preliminary session held in the morning, Emily swam to 6th place with a score of 85.5000, which secured her place in the top half of the draw for the evening’s final event. Swimming 8th in the final, Emily delivered a powerful performance and earned 85.9000 points, good for a 6th place finish.
Russian sensation Varvara Subbotina, who also won the event 2 years ago in Kazan and is, at 17 years old, the current Russian senior soloist, won gold with 93.5667. Marta Fiedina from Ukraine was second and Mana Fujiwara from Japan captured bronze.
In the solo technical event, Emily placed 8th with a score of 83.7689. Subbotina, Fiedina and Fujiwara repeated as gold, silver and bronze medalists.
