Women's Olympic Synchronized Swimming Rules Are More Strict Than You Could Ever Imagine. From 8 Hour Training Days To No Bling Allowed...
Subscribe: goo.gl/Hnoaw3
The 2020 Olympics are right around the corner and the Team USA synchronized swimming team is looking polished and ready. But swimmers like Anita Alvarez and Mariya Koroleva didn’t get on the team by accident. They had to train hard and follow a lot of very strict rules to get where they are today. After learning about this sport, many agree it’s the hardest, most grueling water sport in the Olympics.
In order to compete for the gold, synchro swimmers must train for 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. Their workouts are intense, involving exercises in and out of the pool. They must always look their best during swim competitions. So they wear the best waterproof makeup they can find, usually from high-end makeup stores in Paris. But don’t let those pretty faces fool you. This sport is a battlefield under the water. At least half of all synchronized swimmers wind up with concussions. They had to make new rules to protect swimmers after they get kicked in the head, like not letting them get back in the water too soon. Gender discrimination is a problem for swimmers in this sport. No men are allowed to compete in the synchronized swimming events in the Olympics. But that might be changing soon. One tradition is still going strong among the synchro swimmers: hair gel. Swimmers put gelatin in their hair to get that perfect, slicked-back look. And it’s really hard to wash out. Here are some of the strict rules synchronized swimmers have to follow.

I think they made it sound like the community of synchro doesn’t like or want men in. I’m not totally sure why we don’t have them in the Olympics yet but that is the only competition that I know of that doesn’t allow men. Besides, our national meets are really large synchro meets and are even bigger than the olympics (not in population; just teams wise) because it is a lot easier to qualify for. Hope this helps anyone who is thinking about the sport or who wanted another POV.

I can understand why they don't want coed teams but not having any men's teams is just ridiculous this is the opposite of the suffrage movement where women couldn't vote for decades these men should be allowed to compete on their own teams

It’s actually when the CO2 is high (not low). The problem doesn’t come from lack of oxygen, the problem comes from overproduction of CO2 from our cells, resulting in hypoventilation (not hyperventilation). This hypoventilation results in increase partial pressure of CO2 and decreased oxygen circulation to the brain causing CNS effects like seizures and tremors.

Hidden knowledge. If one girl needs to scratch her butt during a routine,she gives the other girls a signal so they can all scratch their butts at the same time.

I don't know what it's like for the real professionals but in my school years I was semi-professional swimmer (not synchronized) and when we got our period we didn't come to practice. It was a week off basically. But you can still do it with a tampon though.
