Synchronized swimmers cannot touch the bottom
of the pool during a routine.
Synchronized swimmers swim with their eyes
open under water to see teammates and make corrections in alignment.
The swimmers can hear the music underwater
because there are speakers in the pools.
A lift in synchronized swimming is done by
raising the body of one or more swimmers up to or above the water surface.
Swimmers perform lifts with only their body
strength and are not aloud to use the bottom of the pool.
Deck work is the movements the athletes perform
on the deck once the music starts and before entering the pool.
Deck work only sets the mood of the routine
and actually does not count on the final score.
