After the Tokyo Olympics, the Chinese synchronized swimming team entered a period of adjustment.
In the past 7 months, the team has been updated, and young players have quickly taken the lead and achieved impressive results in this World Championship.
The Chinese team, consisting of Feng Yu, Chang Hao, Wang Liuyi, Wang Qianyi, Xiao Yanning, Xiang Yingxuan, Zhang Yayi, and Wang Ciyue, won the championship in the two items of collective technical choice and collective free choice.
Although many of them are new faces of the World Championships, from the preliminaries to the finals, regardless of the quality of action, synchronization or artistic appeal, the content of the competition presented by the eight girls is significantly better than other opponents competing in the same field.
