Randall said: “It was great! Hearing the crowd cheer for us when we were walking out was fantastic and it gave us that extra buzz.”
Commenting on their performance, Federici added: “We’re very happy with the score, we haven’t been able to get 88 in the technical routine for a while so it’s great to see that and we’re ahead of the people that we wanted to be ahead of at this stage of the competition so far.”
