There is so much grace and athleticism required to participate in synchronized swimming. It is like watching a dance. Similar to a ballet or concert, it is an art to most. It does get mesmerizing watching these graceful swimmers dance in the water.
Put in the work, the effort and time needed, and you could probably do this with your friends too.
Like these guys.
They look like a boyband from the 90’s when they march on stage wrapped in towels looking ready for a good swim.
The boys have a lot to live up to. Are they up to the challenge?
The crowd cheers in anticipation as the music plays. They dive to their right, one after the other and already the audience is loving it. Seven pairs of feet break the surface of their “water”. They’re really into this.
Kicking and splitting, they look so “graceful” and it’s only begun.
The audience roars their approval for the first act.
The boys gather their strength and proceed to execute an alternating sequence of dives as one begins to seemingly hover and float on the surface. Those swim caps sure came in handy!
One of the boys is lifted up by his friends who have gathered in a circle, and they proceed to spin to the Radetzky march, Op. 228 by Andre Rieu and Johan Strauss Orchestra.
This takes an insane amount of endurance, strength, and flexibility. The ability to hold your breath underwater for long periods of time is strength in itself. Now imagine having to perform with a team.
Just look at how muscular these guys are. They really prepared for this!
Those abs are the result of dedication.
Without breaking stride, they continue by forming a line and swaying back and forth with incredible control. The water looks to be too calm though. Something fishy going on…
The audience is getting rowdy but that doesn’t seem to faze these guys.
Distractions aside, they pull up and strike a beautiful pose!
The boys draw both laughter and applause when they dive off one by one on opposing sides. Listen to that crowd!
That one guy doesn’t seem to notice the dorsal fin until it’s too late though. Swimming along side him is one of the biggest and deadliest ocean predators. Someone grab him quick!
He lets out a terrifying scream of terror. Good thing his buddies are there to save him! Two guys dive in and attempt to fight off the super predator. Must be nice to have such brave friends!
That shark is putting up a fight but it’s no match for this brotherhood!
These bros got each other’s backs that’s for sure. The hilarious skit ends after the shark is defeated. They rise up together for a bow while the classic Baywatch theme blares from the speakers. Never you fear when the boys are here!
Listen to that audience! Laugh your heart out by watching the video below.
