 Canada firm as favourites in all facets of Games Synchronised Swimming competition.

Canada firm as favourites in all
facets of Games Synchronised
Swimming competition.

Canada will seek to continue its dominance in Synchronised Swimming when the program gets underway on Day Three of the Games.

The Canadians have won every Commonwealth Games gold medal in Synchronised Swimming since it was introduced at Edinburgh in 1986.

Making her debut in Melbourne, Marie Pier Boudreau Gagnon is the favourite in the Solo event.

The 23-year-old finished sixth at the FINA World Championships in Montreal, scoring 94.5 out of a possible 100.

Isabelle Rampling and Jessika Dubuc have the task of maintaining Canada's unbeaten run in the Duets competition.

Six other countries will join the Canadians in the pool over the weekend, with the main challenges expected to come from England and Australia.

The English have medalled at every Commonwealth Games Synchronised Swimming event but are desperate to breakthrough for their first gold.

Australia's Irena Olylevsky has come out of retirement to compete at her home-town Games.

She will fly the Aussie flag in the Solo event and Dannielle Liesch and Luda Plotnikova will compete in the Duet.

New Zealand's team is a family affair, spearheaded by Lisa Daniels who will compete in the Solo and partner sister Nina in the Pairs.

South Africa, Malaysia and India round out the field.
