Lee Ri-Young, Heo Yoon-Seo reach first-ever World Championships Artistic Duet Free final

Lee Ri-young (23, Busan Swimming Federation) and Heo Yoon-seo (18, Apgu Jeong-go) have qualified for the final of the Women’s Duet Free at the 2024 World Aquatics Championships.

Lee and Heo scored 215.2875 points, including a 77.4500 artistic score and 137.8375 performance score, to finish 10th out of 38 nations in the women’s duet free preliminary round of the event on Sunday at the Aspire Dome in Doha, Qatar.

They will compete against 12 other teams in the final at 8 p.m. ET on Aug. 8.

This is the first time a South Korean athlete has advanced to the duet free final at the World Championships.

Since the 2007 World Championships in Melbourne, artistic swimming has divided the duet into technical and free.

The technical is an evaluation of the compulsory elements of the performance, while the free is a free-for-all.

Earlier in the day, Lee and Heo finished 10th in the duet technical final, the highest-ever ranking for a South Korean athlete.

They did not compete in any of the non-Olympic 카지노사이트 singles events at the Games to qualify for Paris.

South Korean artistic swimming hasn’t qualified for the Olympic Games since sisters Park Hyun-sun and Park Hyun-ha competed at London 2012.

The Paris Olympic Artistic Swimming Duet will feature 18 teams, with the first 10 spots going to the 10 nations that qualified for the team event and the five nations that won the continental championships.

The remaining three spots will be distributed according to their performance at the World Championships in Doha.

Lee and Heo will need to earn the highest possible score in the duet free final on Aug. 8 and then wait to see how other countries fare.

The goal is to finish in the top three among the countries that do not qualify for the team competition.
