Synch or Swim? Synchronized Swimming Should Rock Your Socks

“Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Watch this thing I can do in the pool! Mom!”

There is no one on this planet who hasn’t taken the opportunity to turn their swimming pool splashing a step further and organize a synchronized swimming performance for the entire swim club. “Watch my handstand twirl!” has turned into a life dream of winning Olympic gold and frankly I’m not sure how these girls do it. Magic? Maybe they’re born with it? Maybe it’s Maybelline? The sport may not be one favored by still photos but that’s an even better reason to watch it live! Silly or seriously awesome, these underwater beauties should be enough to convince you to check out the Synchronized Swimming Events on August 9th, and 10th!

Can’t get enough of the water ballet or London 2012? Check out the documentary on the USA Team here and follow the HelloGiggles Olympic Fever with the twitter hashtag #HelloOlympics until Closing Ceremonies on August 12th!

    Its so good to see hellogiggles talking abt synchronized swimming! I was an athlete and now im a coach of synchro, it looks like magic yeah hahaha it is hard to learn all the moves, its the mixing of ballet and swimming but any girl can learn, it take times to learn but when u get use to the figures and everything u can do magic too. And girls should never think its too late to start doing synchro, iv seen a team of old ladies doing it! Its super cool! Ppl from LA if u wanna try, theres the Aqualillies (@Aqualillies ) They’re like a vintage synchro group that presents in events and parties, they also teach, u can connect w them on twitter 😉

    YAY for synchro coverage! I was a synchronized swimmer for 9 years growing up and I absolutely loved every second of it! It gets far too little love by the media. My mom, sister, and I got to see it in the ’96 Olympics in Atlanta and it was amazing. I wish it got more tv time.
