Synchronised Swimming


About the sport

Just like artistic gymnastics, Synchronized Women only includes female athletes. The sport was born at the beginning of the XX century after a tour by the Australian Annette Kellerman through the United States in which she showcased aquatic acrobatics. The discipline had its first competitions in the decade of the 1930’s and debuted in the Olympics in Los Angeles 1984.

The specialty consists of combining swimming, gymnastics, and dance inside the pool. In the Olympics it is performed in pairs or in group of eight, performing routines to the rhythm of music. The competition is divided into four parts: technical and free, each representing 50% of the points handed out by the judges.
