Australian synchronised swimming team promotes new image in racy video


Tired of their sport being seen as underwater ballet, Australia’s synchronised swimmers have stripped off their ornamental image in pursuit of a racier reputation in the build-up to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Australian national team members have dumped the sequins and thick, China doll makeup in favour of smoky eyes, designer swimsuits and sexier routines.

A promotional shoot for Sony’s new waterproof MP3 player, leaked to The Courier-Mail, has revealed a more playful, and saucier, side of our dedicated synchro stars.

“We’re not a high-profile sport so I’m happy to get synchro out there,” London Olympian and Brisbane resident Bianca Hammett said. “Synchronised swimmers are often associated with loud costumes and makeup, so it was nice to portray a classier look and have fun with some contemporary dance moves.
