Might I recommend this event for you Chris:

The small town not far from here has England's oldest brewery and a fairly good indoor swimming pool.

Maybe but boys would find synchro very hard to do. I don't know if boys and men have the core strength, flexibility to do it well enough.

in the first video, the male swimmer is very tired after 2 mins and 40 sec

Forget the sparkly bathing suits and smiles, this is an incredibly difficult sport for guys.
You are so right!

Agree with you. The university I work at has a synchro team and several men work out with the team.

In our synchro club we have more adults both men and women wanting to learn synchro and each year we now receive three or four boys in instructional level. They compete against novice girls in solos and figures and more an more events have a mixed gender duet. Males bring a new dimension to the sport.

Do you object to the waterproof make up, hairdo's and fixed smiles in Synchronised Swimming or the concept of a synchronised gymnastics display in water?


In England, Morris Dancing is traditionally carried out by men, should women be excluded from Morris Dancing ?
