baron-pierreIV Posted August 28, 2006 Report Share Posted August 28, 2006 Beside, why Baron are you so interested in syncro swimLogic Well, honestly -- at first, it looks like some idiotic sport -- like figure skaters (I mean their swimsuits have all these sequins, etc.) who, while their rink has melted, have NOT given up their efforts and are still doing their pirouettes, etc., even while nearly drowning. (Just as I think Water Polo is Ice Hockey but with the rink melted!!) But then when you actually examine the sport -- it is probably one of the MOST difficult physical exertions there are! I mean (1) you have to be almost part-fish to endure the rigours of the discipline; (2) the gals have to be in perfect Unision and in time with the music -- even while underwater!; (3) what? 3/4ths of the time? they are submerged, head first, feet in the air, in the water; and (4) they execute really physical maneuvers while still trying to look effortless. I mean it is a DAMNED difficult discipline -- and those mermaids are certainly more pleasing to watch than all those Ben and Michael Johnsons, just huffing and puffing around that track. I mean, Synchro Swimming, is what the Olympics are all about -- Sequins and Sweat (but disguised) -- the perfect SUmmer counterpoint to Figure Skating! That's the future of the Olympics!!
