Loano Synchro Cup XIX April 24th - 27th
'As there was no funding for a Great Britain side we competed as England
Synchro is a popular sport in Italy and the compettion was advertised all around town. When we arrived for the final we found that it was going to be televised on Italian TV. There was also a large audience with lots of home supporters as well as a small but loud group of English supporters and parents with their Union Jacks.
Going to Loano as part of an England Team was a grwat experience. We hope that the continuing difficulties with funding can be resolved to allow British Synchro to go on to greater and better things'
