How long have you been involved 
in synchronized swimming?

I have been involved for two years.

What do you like best about it?

Synchro combines swimming with gymnastics, music, makeup, fashion and performing. I love all of these so much! Also, I love my teammates and how much time we get to spend together. We practice together, compete together, hang out together and get to travel together.

What team do you swim for?

I swim with Suncoast Waterworks. They are based out of Largo, FL.

Would you like to go to college or the Olympics and continue on in synchronized swimming?

I would love to get a college scholarship for synchro and go to the Olympics! I hope by the time I’m in college, The University of Florida has a scholarship for artistic swimming.

Share anything else you would like us to know!

My team, Suncoast Waterworks, qualified to go to the Junior Olympics in Colorado this June.


Synchronized Swimming was originally referred to as water ballet in the beginning of the 20th century and has been an event at the Summer Olympics since the 1984 Games.
