Jamaican synchronized swimming team


Good for these girls. Synchronized swimming is an extremely difficult sport, of which I have firsthand knowledge. I spent many, many hours in the pool as a teenager, training on a team. Always having skin that reeked of chlorine and dry hair. Early morning practices and nights occupied by more practices. But we were in the best shape of our lives and could swim two lengths of the pool underwater. Our team won the provincial championships.
It is not an easy sport, and these girls have added financial challenges. Good for them for their perseverance and they deserve the reward of being acknowledged by Beyoncé.
