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.

Thank you for making this video. Some people still believe that synchro shouldn't be a sport, and that makes me sad. I did this sport for five years, where I went from novice to senior provincial team representing my city. It is really hard physically and mentally, and I can confirm that there are many injuries that occur in this sport. I nearly got a concussion myself because I was the base in a lift and the girl jumping off my shoulders did a backflip and landed on my head. I got lucky to just be dazed for a second. I am really thankful to have been able to participate in this sport.

Take it from a synchro swimmer; gelatine isn’t that bad. But seriously once it’s in it takes weeks for it to be completely out. I have a friend that has asthma and she hit her chest diving into the pool at an important comp so she didn’t go under for any figures. I later heard two of her ex-teammates talking bad about her saying that they would have won without her. I’m competing in a regional comp soon and national in slightly longer. Also with the whole smiling thing, another of my friends has to do scary faces to suit her music.

tbh, the people that have kicked their teammates in the head causing them a concussion, should be off the team, because they're responsible for that. but of course, the person that gets INJURED has to be kicked off.

Two of my close friends are synchronized swimmers and it's truly one of the hardest sports. I know one of them been doing it for at least 7-8 years and they are not that great as you would imagine. Yes, for synchronized swimmers they are very good and I'm proud of them, but it takes lots and lots of years to be as great as someone in the Olimpycs.

Speaking Frome experience: the best protection is knox. No one is going to kick you in the head and risk getting their feet stuck

And I'm packing up to leave after practice and the masters have their practice right after ours and suddenly, from the speaker, I hear... Bok bok bok bok bok bok Then the Chicken Dance melody.

Should men be allowed to compete in SS at the Olympics. ABSOLUTELY! There are many sports that have a male team, a female or co-ed teams/partners. Same token...if a woman can compete on a high level & the sport doesn't have female/co-ed team, they better damn well give her a fair shot! And even if they do.

New respect... although it's a judged competition involving makeup and music (vs sports), still they are athletes to be sure. I swim laps. Go team USA. I'll root you on from my couch with a beer.
