Stairway to Heaven Water Ballet

When water ballet became competitive, they renamed it synchronized swimming. It's still as hokey as can be, as you can see in this performance to Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." (via With Leather)

Hokey? Yeah, I suppose, there haven't been any big breaks from tradition in 60 years, they need a Bob Fosse or Twyla Tharp to shake 'em up. However, I don't think most people appreciate how difficult it is to perform. Then to get a bunch of girls synchronized doing that difficult thing is quite impressive to me.

I always wondered: in pairs sync swimming, if one of the duo drowns does the partner have to drown too to stay in sync and not get marked down?
