Allowing Men in Synchro at FINA Worlds

For many years, men have not been allowed to participate in synchronized swimming international competitions. It is time for a change! Just as it is in figure skating, it is possible to have both men and women enjoy competing in this sport together. If FINA accepts to start at the masters level, where there are more men in the sport, this may be a big step forward in synchro. So to all of the synchro lovers out there, please join us. Our goal is to have mixed categories at future FINA World Masters.

  • debbie gaudet My son is 9 and has been swimming Synchronized since he was 6. He loves it and I know he would love to see this happen

  • Anonymous This should have happened years ago. Anyone who has seen Bill May swim would agree.
