Last Sunday an Aquatics World Championship was closed in Barcelona, Spain. The Russian national team won 21 medals, occupying the 2nd place by team rankings /the US team is the 1st/.
The Russians topped the podium 10 times, two times fewer than Stars and Stripes was played to celebrate 12 gold medals.
