Rhythmic Olympics

August 20, 2008 at 2:17 am (Uncategorized)

I must say i have really enjoyed watching the Olympics the past two weeks.  I’ve been so impressed by abilities and accomplishments of all the different countries.  However, i have a thought; specifically on the events/competitions that involve synchronization or precise timing (i.e. synchronized diving).  Maybe this is obvious, but i believe that duo teams could sync up their performance if they worked more on the rhythm of their routines.  I’m sure they do something along those lines, but listening to some of the divers count off their jumps and seeing pairs begin their routines, no where near at the same time…i just have to wonder…maybe they should focus more on their rhythm.  As in actually planning out the “groove” of their efforts.  Yes i’m biased, especially with my previous metronome-heavy marching career, but you have to admit…it just makes sense.  GO USA!!
