Abstract

Public interest in synchronized swimming has increased as a result of the 1984 Summer Olympics, however, there has been very little research completed to date on this sport. The information presented in this paper is the result of the first year of a five year longitudinal study to determine body composition and hip flexibility characteristics of intermediate and elite synchronized swimmers.
