Watch this again before you go to bed tonight.

What I want to know:
In what universe does anyone find this “sport” entertaining?
I mean- is there someone out there who goes, “OH! synchronized swimming! Let’s get tickets.”
I’m never going to sleep again.
Just one more (in a loooong list) example of why we need two Olympics. One competition and one ‘spectacle’. Maybe this event could be ‘Jersey Beach’. Put the ping pong and ribbon twirlers in there too.
It’s the whore makeup applied thick enough for a blind man to see that enhances the creepiness.
Clowns are scary enough, but to syncronize them in the water is sheer terror.

Terrifying? Fer sure.
Let’s see the OTHER end of ‘em to make up for it.
At least there was the Beethoven.
@Boobie, after the fright wore off, the next thing I thought was that Beethoven must be spinning in his grave.
They all have fiveheads.
Just goes to show you
Nothing is too ridiculous if performed at a world class, Olympian level
FALSE advertising, dammit… gald it was only 1:30.

I liked Ester Williams better.
The pinchy noses scare me more than anything.
Thanks for reminding me of my last bad fever dream.

It’s not a sport if you judge it. Downhill skiing is a sport; snowboarding a halfpipe is not. 100 meter freestyle swimming is a sport; gymnastics are not. Sorry but if your winning or losing depends on someone else’s opinion, then it’s not competition; it’s someone’s opinion that you are better or worse than the next guy.
I understand that these athletes practice for years. That does not mean they are competing in a sport. What they are doing is entertainment. If it’s you versus the clock, it’s a sport because the fastest person will win. If it’s you versus some biased judges, there’s no way to know. It’s completely subjective.
I agree with @Lowell. Separate out the entertainment from the sport. The entertainers can have their medals but they are all about the size of a quarter. They are not gold, silver, or bronze. They are zinc and are plated to look gold, silver, or bronze. The ribbon can be the colors of the olympic rings. No ceremony, you are just handed the medal. It has the city and Olympics and the year on the front; it has the words Entertainment Division on the back. Nothing else. Their medals are not counted towards their country’s total. The winners of the sporting events get what everyone gets now — a ceremony where they are awarded a big gold medal with a ribbon.
Sorry but I just think that subjective guessing is not a way to crown a victor.
