Olympic swimming: Russia clinch synchronised team title fourth timeLondon: Russia`s synchronised swimmers clinched their fourth straight Olympic title in team event at London Olympics Friday, concluding their tour with a sweep of both duet and team gold medals.

The Russian team entered Friday`s free routine final with a top-ranking score of 49.47 points from Thursday`s technical routine.

They carried the lead to a decisive win in the free routine with a performance of unmatched precision and power, scoring the highest 98.93 points, bringing their overall total to 197.030 points.

China, second after the technical routine ahead of Spain, consolidated their advantage in the free routine, scoring 97.010 points for an overall 194.010 to bag their first silver Olympic medal.

The bronze medal went to Spain, who were second ahead of China at Beijing Games. The Spanish swimmers, wearing silver hats and costumes sequined like fish scales, staged powerful lifts and jumps to the theme of ocean creatures, gaining 96.92 points in the free routine towards their total of 193.120 points, nearly one point behind Chinese.

Similar to the duet, Canada continued on a Cirque du Soleil-inspired routine, confirming their fourth position with 95.203 in the free routine and overall 189.630.

Japan failed to achieve a medal in synchronised swimming for the first time since the sport was introduced in 1984. They were fifth both in the duet and team competitions.
