Hurst boys’ ‘synchronized swimming’ routine goes viral



Synchronized swimming onstage by fifth grade boys – it’s an amusing sight that’s gone viral, shared online more than 130,000 times.

No water is needed. The boys can kick, flutter and dive on cue onstage.

Boys Grayson, Mason, Jack, Trent, Matthew and Drew are better known as the Porter Elementary synchronized swimmers.

Mason’s mom came up with the idea for their school talent show last summer after watching a similar skit on YouTube, but they had to start from scratch.

“They had no experience with what synchronized swimming was, so we had to show them…they had to understand it was a serious sport, and they couldn’t just get up here and act like goofballs,” said Mason’s mom, Jennifer Mallory.
