Pacific Synchro Swim team athlete Luiza Vasylyeva is lifted by teammates Kirstyn Parkinson

Members of the Pacific Sport Synchro Victoria team enjoyed a successful weekend at the Jean Peters Provincials in Nanaimo.

The medals came in early as PSSV’s 13-to-15-year-old team finished first, second and fourth. The same age group also placed first in duet, solo and the team events.

Ten-year-old Luiza Vaslyeva earned four 12-and-under gold medals in figures, solo, team and duet along with her 11-year-old partner Emma Choo.

The 12-and-unders placed fifth overall in team and had the “best swim they have ever performed” said coach Aisha Vance.

The girls are back in the pool training this week to prepare for the community water show at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 29, at Saanich Commonwealth Place.
