Synchronized Swimming

Started out as a sport for men in the 1800s, Synchronised Swimming, now one of the two all-women sports in Olympics and also one of the most popular ones, was introduced in the 1984 Los Angeles Games. Though initially only solo and duet events were organized, the team event too made its debut in the 1996 Atlanta Games. As of now, Russia leads the gold medals tally with 6 whereas USA is close second with 5. As far as total medals tally is concerned, Japan leads with 12 medals (4 silver and 8 bronze) out of the 39 awarded so far. USA and Canada are at second and third places with 9 and 8 medals respectively. In the 2012 London Games, 104 women swimmers will compete for the gold in 2 different events. The competition will be held at Olympic Park - Aquatics Centre from 5th August to 10th August.
