Synchronized swimmer Anita Alvarez makes her Olympic debut in Rio alongside duet partner Mariya Koroleva. Before the duo marches out for a routine, one of Alvarez’s superstitions is to yawn without taking off her nose clip. And when she’s not practicing, she’s singing, even if she admits her voice isn’t very good.
