    OK, the athletics and the track cycling haven't even started yet, but he's got to be worth an early shout for SPOTY.

  10. Brazilian authorities have confirmed that three crocodiles and hundreds of lily pads appeared overnight in the Olympic diving pool.

    The latest development follows Tuesday’s mysterious, but strangely underplayed, incident during which the water at the same venue turned a spooky deep green colour in the space of half an hour.

    Biodiversity experts have set up a hide at the edge of the water, in the hope of making further unexpected sightings, with a school of piranhas at the top of their wish list.

    A spokesman for the swimming venue said, “We basically don’t know what the fuck is going on, short of mother nature appears to be taking over.

    “I was half expecting to find the stadium covered in jungle vines this morning.

    “But whatever happens, those crocodiles are going to make excellent viewing when the 3-metre springboard diving gets underway tomorrow.

    “I’d record the highlights package if I were you.”

    Does synchronised swimming fit under swimming? I guess so as I haven't seen a general aquatics thread ...

    my question: how do they know what the music is doing when they spend 2/3 of their routine with their heads under water??

    also .... just why :D it's so daft!

    they used to even have solo synchronised swimming which doesn't make any kind of logical sense.

    Depends what they're synchronising with.

    Apparently it's the music... Although how they do that with their heads under water I don't know

    They have speakers underwater.

    I'm sure big events have some fancy underwater speaker setup but otherwise it's mostly counting in your head.
