19th FINA World Championship Preview

by Alyssa Jacobs, USA Artistic Swimming

This week the senior national team will compete at the 19th FINA World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. Nine routines will compete across the categories with 13 athletes representing USA.

For many artistic swimming teams at this competition, this will be the first international appearance for their country this season. Team USA has the advantage of several competitions under its belt including two virtual World Series stops, one in-person World Series and the Super Final. At all of these competitions, athletes and coaches have gathered feedback from the judges on what they can do to maximize their score at this year’s World Championships. Each event at the World Championship will consist of a preliminary and a final competition. The action kicks off on June 17th and concludes on June 25thLed by Andrea Fuentes, Anna Voloshyna and Lara Texieira, who own 14 combined
 World Championship appearances including many medals, the squad is well-prepared for the obstacles in front of them.

As mentioned previously, four athletes are returners to the World Championship event and three competed in Budapest in 2017. Two-time Olympian, Anita Alvarez, collegiate All-Americans Natalia Vega and Elizabeth Davidson, and returner Dani Ramirez will provide veteran experience and competitive maturity to the team.
