North Texan Mary Killman and synchro partner Mariya Koroleva were bounced from medal contention during the Synchronized Duet final Tuesday.
Killman and Koroleva were the second of 12 teams to compete and scored a 87.770 with their Olympic-themed routine.
The pair finished in London with a total of 175.670 when the qualification technical routine and final free routine were combined.
Russia's Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina took the gold, Spain's Ona Carbonell and Andrea Fuentes took the silver and Huang Xuechen and Liu Ou took the bronze.
Killman, 21, and Koroleva, 22, known as "Special K" or "MK-squared," have only been together as a duet team for only a year, qualifying for the Olympics while competing against teams that have been together for four years was no small feat.
The final duet competition which took place this morning is scheduled to be broadcast on MSNBC at 3 p.m.
