After the conclusion of the World Cup Super-Final hosted in Budapest, Hungary USA Artistic Swimming can return to the United States with the satisfaction of going three-for-three in gold medal team performances and Kenny Gaudet gaining the title of 2024 World Cup Men Solo Champion. 

This was the first World Cup competition where the eight members remained consistent in the Team Roster, as USA staff experimented with different athlete combinations before Olympic selection. The official Olympic roster of Daniella Ramierz, Anita Alvarez, Jacklyn Luu, Audrey Kwon, Jaime Czarkowski, Megumi Field, Ruby Remati, and Keana Hunter made a statement in their debut of the official roster. 


Leading off the competition for the red, white and blue, Kenny Gaudet opened the weekend with this Men Solo Technical Routine. With increasing his difficulty from 22 in Markham to 29.8 Gaudet increased his score by a total of 26.6584 finishing with a total score of 207.0300 as he earned a spot on the podium receiving silver. 


Jaime Czarkowski and Megumi Field made their second appearance as duet partners in Budapest, choosing to participate in the Technical Duet receiving 7th place overall with a score of 222.5134.  


Team USA opened the weekend with their Michael-Jackson themed routine in Budapest declaring a difficulty of 46.35. The routine was rewarded as a technically clean swim to receive 285.1667, earning gold for their performance. 


On Saturday the Olympic Roster debuted their brand-new Acrobatic Routine “The Sorceresses” that was collaboratively created with the guidance of Head Coach Andrea Fuentes for the Olympic Games. The Head Coach shared in her recent Instagram Post she made over 100 different cuts to create the perfect sound to embody the message she hopes the routine will get across. This routine is meant to honor Sorceresses’ journey, capturing the essence of their spiritual state of mind and the powerful, unseen forces they command. 

Despite receiving some deductions, USA's creative and inspiring routine received gold finishing with a total score of 229.0367. 


On the final day of competition, Kenny Gaudet shared his brand new Solo Free routine to “Lose Control” By Teddy Swims with the help and guidance and support of Bill May. The routine earned a bronze medal and a score of 169.9209 receiving 20.45 points higher than his previous Solo Free routine performed in Markham. 


USA topped off the weekend with their Jason Momoa, water-themed Free Routine. The athletes barely had time to sit on the couch to catch their breath before a score of 346.6104 appeared, indicating the red, white and blue had performed a perfect swim and would take Gold in the Free Routine category. 

A score of 346.6104 currently stands as the highest score since the new scoring system has been introduced surpassing China’s Free Routine swim in Bejing when they received an impressive score of 343.3479. 

Team USA is officially 4 weeks away from their first swim at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games with competition beginning on August 5th opening with the Team Tech routine. For more information on their schedule, and where to watch check out this page, and follow us on social media for updates!
