London Olympics: Synchronised SwimmingOne of the most beautiful and graceful sports on the Olympic schedule is Synchronised Swimming, which comes to the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park between Sunday 5 and Friday 10 August. Requiring extraordinary athletic ability, stamina, endurance, flexibility, breath control and technical grace, Synchronised Swimming is akin to ballet but with the added pressure of performing in water. There are two medal events, with athletes performing both free and technical routines in pairs (duets) and in teams of eight. Short routines are performed to a musical accompaniment while judges take into consideration a whole host of factors, such as choreography, difficulty and execution. Synchronised Swimming has been an Olympic sport since the Los Angeles 1984 Games, and while Japan have notched the most medals - 12 in total - none of those have been gold, the leading holder of which is Russia, with six. Along with Rhythmic Gymnastics, Synchronised Swimming is one of two Olympic sports that are contested only by women.
