Did you know...?

posted September 3, 2008 @ 6:09 AM  |  Fun Facts category

According the USOC, the U.S. synchronized swimming team practices more than any other sport. Between eight and ten hours a day, six days a week.


It is amazing how much training these athletes do! They have to be strong swimmers and so their training includes a lot of lap swimming (including underwaters and butterfly). Training includes stretching/flexibility excercises, drilling, ballet, pilates, weightlifting, and of course hours and hours of practicing the routines. I hope that as this sport gains membership and momentum it will also gain the respect that it deserves.

In fact, even the younger kids train a lot. My daughter, Melanie, is just 15 years old and competes in synchronized swimming. She and her teammates (the Synchro Belles from Palm Coast FL) train 11 out of 12 months a year and have trained between 10 and 24 hours a week during these 11 months (with training peaking 4-6 weeks before nationals).
