Synchronized swimming takes over the Water Cube

Synchronized swimming is perhaps one of the most ridiculed events at the Olympics. I am sure there are plenty of fans of the event, but there are also people who don’t think it belongs in the Olympics.

Jim White from the Telegraph writes:

And it is true, synchronised swimming is a huge test of an athlete’s aerobic capacity, flexibility and co-ordination. The trouble is, it is a significantly more challenging test of the waterproof capacity of her mascara. This is surely the oddest diversion available at the Olympic park, the only time you can find international performers, made up like a bad drag act, earning points for the successful completion of the travelling egg-beater.
