From its origins as water ballet in the late 19th century, Synchronised Swimming has come a long way to its present form. The art of looking graceful and keeping in time to the music all while treading water is often likened to the physical demands of running a mile while holding your breath. The rhythm and flair demonstrated by the swimmers makes for an entertaining display of strength, athleticism and skill.
The new Baku Aquatics Centre will play host to the discipline of Synchronised Swimming which commences on 12 June 2015 and features four medal events. The five days of competition will see 150 junior athletes gather in Baku to showcase their talent and attempt to win gold. Medals will be available across solo, duet, team and free combination events.
