It seems the synchronized swimming team based in Kingston is no more. However, a new team materialized in Port Antonio. And they are doing quite well, despite financial challenges. I hope they become the first team to make the Olympics. Check out the story here.
This brings me back to all those hours in the pool. All that training, all that chlorine and the bonds with your teammates- almost no words were necessary. Not to mention the fact that we could swim two lengths underwater and balance upside down. I can still do it all, if I try hard enough and if I don’t worry about technique.
