    Surely it was a mistake to show their routine too early in Olympic year?

    They are bound to be copied by other countries. Much better to keep this under wraps until the preliminary round at the Games.

    Still, the gold looks a cert. I definitely wouldn't bet against them.

    Is that like seeing the other team's plays? Tough as it may be, I never got interested in syncro.

    As humorous as the video was....

    Those folks would have a very tough time trying to pull off that routine in real life, given a lot of the time they were "dry" from the waste up!
