Seven synchro golds at provincials

  • May. 24, 2011 11:00 a.m.

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- and 15-year-old team finished first, second and fourth.

The 13-15 team 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 will be back in the pool training this week to prepare for the community water show happening at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 29, at Saanich Commonwealth Place.
