AUS­TRALIA fin­ished 17th out of 27 coun­tries at its first Comen Cup/Mediter­ranean Cup ap­pear­ance in Italy re­cently.

The eight syn­chro­nised swim­mers aged 13 to 15 were from the West Coast Splash club.

Coach Bri­ana Preiss said the com­pe­ti­tion gath­ered the best syn­chro­nised swim­mers in that age group from around the world.

Preiss, of Mos­man Park, said the in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence would help pre­pare the girls for na­tional and even Olympic com­pe­ti­tions in the fu­ture.

“It was a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and they did bet­ter than what we and they ex­pected,” she said.

“We were watch­ing and learn­ing from the other coun­tries to see how ev­ery­one does it and how we can mod­ify our train­ing.”
