Video Shows Reflective Olympic Athlete

Synchronized swimmer Mariya Koroleva of Concord, a veteran of the Walnut Creek Aquanuts, competed in the duets at London Olympics.

The London Olympics are over but the memories live on for fans and athletes.

The latter includes Koroleva and her duet partner Mary Killman finished 11th in the women's duets at the Olympics after making the medals round.

A video of a London news conference before the event shows Koroleva and Killman reflecting about the competition.

The U.S. is a country where athletes can "go for it," Koroleva says in the conference — "just a country of opportunity."

Koroleva wrote a blog about the Olympic experience.

A month before going to London, Koroleva and Killman and the Walnut Creek Aquanuts gave a synchronized swimming demonstration at Heather Farm Park, Walnut Creek.
