Syncronized Diving

This is the first Olympics I have ever seen this sport. I am finding it fascinating to watch. It is hard enough to do these dives, but to do them exactly the same way and at the same time as someone else is just mind blowing to me.

I've got a lot of respect for all of these athletes.

Nearest thing I ever got to synchronized diving was when my cousin and I did belly-flops to tick off my sister when we were kids ... or with my BIL when we did it to tick off our daughters/wives.

I have no problem falling through the air like a rock ... I do have a problem doing it gracefully.
