artistic swimming glossary

"After a ballet leg, the swimmers of the French team started forming to do a throw lift". If this sentence doesn't mean anything to you, check out our "synchro swimming" glossary to try to understand the swimmers' rich vocabulary a little more! Some of them even answered our call on Instagram to help us in producing the glossary. So you don't forget anything!
