Men who swim: Swedish synchronised swimmers

I first learned about these Swedish male synchronised swimmers through the Storyville documentary Sync or Swim.  Film maker Dylan Williams got together a group of more or less ordinary, unglamourous middle aged men, formed a team, found a teacher and trained in this sport that is usually practised only by women. The formed the Stockholm Gents Synchronised Swimming Team and much to their surprise ended up as world champions, partly because there was so little competition!

They have since been campaigning to have synchronised swimming for men included as an Olympic Sport.
