Ischenko claims perfect record at swimming worlds

Natalia Ischenko has to find yet more room in her hand luggage after claiming gold number three at the World Aquatic Championships.

The Russian has been a force of nature in Shanghai, wrapping up her third synchronized swimming title on Wednesday in the free solo routine.

Spain’s Andrea Fuentes and China’s Sun Wenyan took the other podium spots, but far behind the unmistakable Russian.

Earlier in the week, Ischenko secured top spot in the solo technical and duet technical events at the Oriental Sports Center.

Today’s result means the Smolensk native has grabbed a record of 13 career World Championship golds.
