KATRINA Ann Hadi and the Lee sisters -- Zylane and Zyanne -- turned in splendid displays to dominate synchronised swimming at the Southeast Asian Championships which ended in Singapore on Monday.
The trio bagged four of the seven gold medals on offer but it could have been a clean sweep if Malaysia had a full representation.
Katrina, who won five gold medals at last year's Indonesia Sea Games, mesmerised the judges with her grace to win the solo technical routine, earning 74.670 points.
The 22-year-old then combined with Zyanne to claim two more gold medals in duet free and technical routines.
The duo were given a tough fight by Singapore's Stephanie-Crystal Yap in the duet free event before prevailing after scoring higher for artistic impression.
Katrina-Zyanne amassed a 74.733 total to edge Stephanie-Crystal, who finished with 70.830.
In the duet technical routine, Katrina-Zyanne were a class above, scoring 75.335 points ahead of silver medallists Stephanie-Crystal (70,830).
Zylane, younger sister of Zyanne, dominated the sole free routine event, posting 70.633 to edge Singapore's Crystal, who scored 70,083, for the gold.
Malaysia opted not to compete in the team events in the spirit of regional friendship.
The trio's performances in Singapore augur well for their preparation ahead of making a serious bid to qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
Synchronised swimming will not be contested at next year's Myanmar Sea Games but is expected to be included when it is Singapore's turn in 2015. By Ajitpal Singh
