Please someone explain to me how Synchronized swimming is an Olympic sport?

I just happened to walk by a TV in the house and the Olympics were on and they were showing the Russian Synchronized swimming team. I guess they are the class of the world very impressive yes, but not a sport.

An Art yes but if you are going to have Sync swimming why not ballet that is beautiful to watch the girls are incredibly strong and in great shape too.

I am sorry I hate when people call games or arts a sport. Poker is a game not a sport Sync Swimming is an artistic performance not a sport. I would hesitate to call Auto Racing a sport it is the racing of machines just because the machine operator is inside the machine does not make it a sport.

I do not mind things like BMX racing since they race bicycles in the Olympics already it is just a different form of bike.

Once again not saying the girls/ladies who do Sync swimming are not great swimmers and are not in great shape but as stated a lot of dancers are in good shape also but what The Rockettes do on dry land is no closer to a sport than Sync Swimming.

It is like Ice Dancing in the Winter Olympics pretty to watch but not a sport.

Now this post should be good for a argument or three lol
