Water Ballet aka Synchronised Swimming

In the early 19th and 20th century Synchronised Swimming became popular in Europe and US. This sport made its Olympics debut in 1984 in Los Angeles. Although it looks deceivingly graceful from the pool side, Synchronised Swimming is an extremely demanding sport calling for great strength, amazing levels of endurance and exceptional flexibility. Swimmers use nose clips to help them stay underwater for longer, but the sport still requires tremendous breath control. Aided by underwater speakers, pairs of swimmers or teams of eight perform short routines to a musical accompaniment. Judges mark a variety of components during the course of a routine, including choreography, difficulty and execution.
