    Synchronized swimming

    Wow, did you guys see the Russian sync pair last night? So far, this is my favorite sport of these Olympics, along with trampoline and kayaking.

    Just when you thought you'd never have to hear the music from Don Quixote ever again

    Before, I thought the only thing I like to watch is the gymnastics. After watching the syncronized swiming, I found another sport I truely enjoy in the Summer Game. Skating is dance on the ice, and syncronized swiming is dance in the water.

    Still, I thought the Russians were the only team that actually made use of their music. Also the Japanese (second place), who I thought had a very well integrated program to a "Japanese Doll" theme in the preliminaries.

    BTW, I noted that the Russian team got a 10.0 -- from the Russian judge.

    Their lowest mark was a 9.8 -- from the Japanese judge!

    The USA synchro swimmers have the best commercial too, the one for AFFLAK with the duck. Inspired.

    Seriously, the Russians were amazing.

    The Canadians have one, too, on CBC. It starts with a male diver, who finds himself in the pool with synchronized swimmers when he emerges after his dive. He then joins in the routine, and is pretty good.
