The duet of Lee Ri-young (23, Busan Swimming Federation) and Heo Yun-seo (18, Apgujeong High School),
who are attempting to compete in the Olympic Artistic Swimming finals for the first time in 12 years,
has successfully laid a stepping stone to Paris.

Lee Young-young and Heo Yun-seo ranked 9th with 232.7351 points
in the 2024 International Aquatics Federation World Aquatics Championships Artistic Swimming Women’s Duet Technical Preliminary
held at the Aspire Dome in Doha, Qatar on the 2nd (local time)
and won a ticket to the finals given to the top 12 teams. 카지노
Those who collaborated to advance to the finals for the first time in the duet technical competition
at the Budapest competition held in 2022 will once again step on the final stage.
Artistic swimming technical must include set performance elements, while free can perform freely.
Lee Ri-young and Heo Yun-seo, who chose the 12th most difficult performance of 34.0500 points
among the 40 teams participating in the preliminaries on this day,
received an artistic score of 91.2500 points and a performance score of 141.4851 points.
They narrowly missed out on a ticket to the finals by finishing in 13th place
with a total score of 204.8133 points in the duet technical at the Fukuoka competition last year,
but in this competition they comfortably overcame the hurdle to advance to the finals.
Lee Ri-young and Heo Yun-seo, who are rewriting the history of Korean artistic swimming,
will once again perform beautifully in the duet technical final,
which begins at 8 pm on the 5th, Korean time.
Then, at 3:30 pm on the 7th, they will try again to advance to the finals in the duet free competition.
Lee Ri-young and Heo Yoon-seo’s goal at the Doha World Championships is to secure a spot at the Paris Olympics.
Those attempting to advance to the Korean Artistic Swimming Olympics for the first time in 12 years since sisters Park Hyun-sun and Park Hyun-ha at the 2012 London Olympics did not participate in the solo competition to focus only on the duet competition.
In the Olympics, only the duet competition is an official event.
A total of 18 countries will qualify for the Paris Olympics Artistic Swimming Duet competition.
First, the 10 countries that have secured the right to participate in the team event (8 people) automatically secure the right to participate in the duet game,
and the winning teams of the five continental continental championships are each allocated one ticket.
And the remaining qualifications will go to the top ranked teams at the Doha World Championships.
Many of the top teams in the World Championships have qualified for the team event,
so if they advance to the finals of the Doha competition, they will likely participate in the Paris Olympics.
