Synchronized Swimming   

1     Annette Kellerman loved to swim. She swam for fun, and she swam in competitions. She enjoyed entertaining the crowds at those swimming competitions, and that led to her interest in synchronized swimming.
 
2     You may never have heard of Annette Kellerman. Many people haven't, even though she was once famous for both her swimming and for starring in Hollywood movies.
 
3     In the early 1900s, Annette was one of the few swimmers who specialized in synchronized swimming, or "water ballet" as it was called then. In synchronized swimming, the swimmers perform a choreographed routine to music. It is much like a dance performance, except that the whole routine is performed in the water. Much of the time, the swimmer is underwater and often upside down.
