2015 FINA World Championships - Maria Shurochkina: member of the winning team of Free Combination in Kazan

Team Russia grabbed eight out of nine gold medals in synchro events at the FINA World Championships in Kazan. Russians made a spectacular and striking finish, winning their combo routine with more than 98 points (98,300). Even some with technical problems, the sound equipment couldn’t kill the perfect execution of a ballet theme “Don Quihote”, presented by the leaders. No, the music didn’t stop them at all like it had already happened twice: during the team routine at the Olympic Games in 2004 or in the team final at the Universiade 2013 in Kazan. There was just some noise or crack in the dynamic speakers.
