I read or heard or imagined that I read or heard somewhere recently that The Olympic Games will be dropping synchronized swimming. This is an outrage, and proof that the World at large is indeed going to hell in a handbasket.

Miss Trix,

 

Don't get your panties in a wad. My sources tell me that Synchronized Swimming is still an official sport. Only the solo version was discontinued in 1992. But Duet and Team are still medal events.

 

Of course you probably know that this is only a "sport" for women. Haven't figured out why they exclude men. Not sure how they handle the transgender issue.

 

Here's a link to the official website.

Enjoy and I hope you sleep better knowing it's still available for the enjoyment of all. :7
