Anastasja Gloushkov recorded a new career best on Friday, finishing in 11th place in the synchronized swimming Solo final in Australia. Gloushkov, who finished in 12th position in the World Championships in Montreal last year, amassed a total score of 89.167 points and edged out Ukrainian Ganna Khmelnytska who came in last place in the final. The good result will nevertheless only be a small consolation for Gloushkov, who failed earlier in the week to reach the final of the duet with Viktoria Yarmolinskaya. The pair only finished the preliminaries in 16th position and as a consequence missed the final and failed to book their place at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Israel's racers began their participation in the championships early Sunday morning and will be looking to guarantee themselves Olympic qualification by reaching the semifinals of their swims.
