Artistic swimming: Sport will not revert to synchronised swimming, despite protests

Synchronised swimming, now known as artistic swimming

Synchronised swimming will now be known as artistic swimming, despite an online campaign and protests from Russia’s deputy prime minister.

The change was agreed by swimming’s world body Fina last week, prompting Vitaly Mutko, Russia’s former sports minister, to ask: “What is the point?”

He also suggested that the Russian Swimming Federation will still refer to the sport by the previous name.
