Katie Clark and Olivia Federici have qualfied for this Summer's Olympic Games, after a fantastic performance at the Olympic Qualification Tournament at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre, the venue for this summer's Games.
Clark and Federici won Sunday's Duet Free in Rio, moving them up to second place overall as they impressed the judges. A top-four result in the swim-off was the requirement to secure their Olympic quota place, so the duet were thrilled with their result.
The pair scored a whopping 80.0333 in the Free routine, their highest international score since they returned to the sport late last year. Their overall total was 157.2544, once Thursday's Technical score was added.
The London 2012 Olympians knew they had to give their all in the swim in order to achieve qualification and they showed excellent height, power and speed throughout the routine.
Following the swim, Head Coach and Olympian Katie Chapman commented: “We are all extremely pleased with that performance. We have trained solidly since Thursday to get that top place in the second round. Katie and Olive have worked tirelessly and the changes were noticeable in every session. Their hard work has really been rewarded here.”
