 n.— «Synchro, as it is called by aficionados, is also growing internationally; next year in Turin, Italy, it will be an Olympic demonstration sport for the second time. Like its waterbound cousin, synchronized swimming, synchro on ice relies on grace and the sublimation of ego, which explains, perhaps, why the sport has been dominated by women.» —“All Together Now, Gentlemen” by Bruce Weber New York Times Apr. 2, 2005.
