Volunteers primed for the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m)

Joanne could prove invaluable to Championships organisers as she speaks not two, not five, not even 10, but 14 languages. A former swimmer who was forced to give up her own competitive career as a teenager after suffering a leg injury, Joanne, 30, jumped at the chance to be a part of the Championships which takes place from 15- 19 December.“I’ve always enjoyed swimming and I knew the event was coming to Dubai and I thought I would go and watch, but then I saw the call for volunteers,” she said. “I decided that rather than just watching the event I could get involved in it which would be even better.”Joanne, who is from Nottingham, England, does not know what job she will be doing at the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Sports Complex yet but she is hoping for a chance to use as many of her different languages as possible.

Soni looks forward to renewing her “very good” rivalry with Leisel Jones of Australia in Dubai

Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Soni of the United States of America (USA) is looking forward to renewing her “very good” rivalry with Australia’s Leisel Jones when the two go head-to-head at the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) in Dubai next week. Soni won her gold medal in Beijing in 2008 when she edged out Jones in the 200m breaststroke final and she beat the Australian in the 100m and 200m events in this year’s Pan-Pacific Championships in Irvine, California in August.But Jones turned the tables on Soni to win the 100m breaststroke final in Beijing and was also part of the 4x100m medley relay team that beat the USA, including Soni, to gold. That level of competition between the pair sets things up beautifully for another confrontation at the spectacular, new Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Sports Complex on the Dubai Bypass Road when the Championships take place from 15 – 19 December.

Moscow 2010, Day 3: Spain renews with victory in Moscow

It was an expected victory for Spain in this fifth edition of the FINA Synchronised Swimming World Trophy taking place in the Russian capital, Moscow. The Iberians, winner of all team events, triumphed with a cumulative score of 389.375. Russia followed behind, having won “only” the duet, for an overall tally of 387.375 while Ukraine, third in team, duet and Combination, made a terrific World Trophy debut, completing the podium with an accumulated total of 381.000.  As a result, the podium was exclusively European, with Canada finishing fourth overall, after a third place finish in the Synchro Highlight Routine on Day 1. The North Americans had won at home last year. Japan followed in fifth place while China, surprisingly, occupied the sixth position. It is a big disappointment for the Chinese, who placed fourth in 2009 and second in 2008. Closing the overall ranking, Egypt continues to better its marks, showing a clear progression since its first participation in 2006 also in Moscow.

The Russian capital already hosted the World Trophy for its inaugural edition in 2006. In today’s first session, all seven participating nations – Canada, China, Egypt, Japan, Russia, Spain and Ukraine – took to the stage to perform in two events: the Synchro Highlight Routine and the Thematic Duet. The World Trophy has an exclusive programme with scores given for Artistic Impression only (i.e. choreography, interpretation of music and manner of presentation) and events are held as direct finals.SYNCHRO HIGHLIGHT ROUTINEIt’s a first award winning performance for Spain which bested Russia in the Synchro Highlight Routine, totalling 96.500 points. The  Spaniards set the tone from the beginning, wearing a golden swimsuit and mask, displaying perfect synchronisation – not an easy task with 12 swimmers in the water! – and excelling in creativity, especially regarding the lifts; one of them involved a swimmer in a bridge-like position over another swimmer performing the same position.
