Synchronised Swimming in London25 October 2019
Synchronised swimming, or artistic swimming, is a series of athletic movements performed in water and choreographed to music.
This unique sport is incredibly strenuous and skillful. A test on all the Olympic sports before the London 2012 Olympic Games found that synchronised swimmers ranked second only to long distance runners in aerobic capacity!
Synchro swimmers need strength and flexibility to perform twists and lifts as well as rhythm and flair to synchronise and interpret the music, which they listen to through underwater speakers.
Routines can be anything from two and a half minutes to five minutes long, depending on whether they perform alone or part of a team, but one rule applies to all routines.
