Google's 10th Olympic Doodle is Synchronized Swimming

Google's 10th doodle for the Olympics is Synchronized swimming.

Synchronized swimming (often abbreviated to Synchro) is a hybrid form of swimming, dance and gymnastics, consisting of swimmers (either solos, duets, trios, combos, or teams) performing a synchronized routine of elaborate moves in the water, accompanied by music. Synchronized swimming demands advanced water skills, and requires great strength, endurance, flexibility, grace, artistry and precise timing, as well as exceptional breath control when upside down underwater. - Wikipedia

  1. Japan is nuts about synchronized swimming, but I'm afraid it makes me fall asleep. Not enough violence! :p

    My favourite sports are the equestrian ones because I love horses so much! Do you think we'll have a horsey Doodle? Probably not. :(
