The Spanish duo Emma García and Pau Ribes repeated fourth place in the final of the technical mixed duo of the Budapest Swimming World Championships this Monday, as in the preliminary round, staying away from the podium with the Italian couple to proclaim themselves world champions

As on Saturday, Italy’s Giordio Minissini and Lucrezia Ruggiero, who put in a very clean round with hardly any penalties, were the best, posting a score of 89.2685, showing a notable superiority over their rivals to win the gold. This is the second gold metal to have hung the transalpine country in artistic swimming, after Minisini himself and Manila Flamini also achieved in Budapest in 2017.

The Spanish couple ended their participation in the Mixed Technical Duo with a very serious round, albeit with errors that stopped them from dreaming of winning a medal, once again beating powers like the United States but not being able to beat Japan (Yotaro Sato) and Tomoka Sato ), silver with 86.5939 points and China (Yiyao Zhang and Hayou Shi), bronze with 86.4425.

Thus, Emma García and Pau Ribes remained on the verge of medals, almost two points off the podium (84.4829) after neither the Chinese nor the Japanese failed, giving the Spanish surprise the option.

Ahead of the mixed technical duo final, Spain’s Iris Tió finished sixth in the solo preliminary round and will compete in the final this Wednesday. To the rhythm of “You’ve Got The Love” by Florence de Machine, the athlete scored more than 89 points in a test in which the Japanese Inui-JPN (94) is destined for gold.
