Sport review

Artistic swimming is a perfect combination of beauty, dance and precision. Athletes who practice this discipline require a high capacity for endurance, as they must spend the first few minutes underwater.  At first it was exclusively a female discipline, but with the passing of the years it became a mixed one; however, competitions at the Pan American Games will be held exclusively in the duets and women’s team, both in technical and free routines. The addition of the scores of both routines will determine the medal.
