The event will be the team’s fourth outing in 2023, after participating in World Cup events in Markham and Montpellier and the Super Final in Oviedo, Spain, where they garnered 4 medals to close out the World Cup season. in Fukuoka, where the entire world field will be present, they will take part in 5 events: solo technical, solo free, duet technical, team technical and acrobatic routine.
