Artistic Swimming, formerly known as Synchronized Swimming, comprises two medal events:

  • Duet
  • Team (8 athletes per)

Both events feature choreographed routines set to music, with judged scoring based on synchronization, difficulty and other factors.

Japan has won more Artistic Swimming medals – 14 – than any other nation. But the 2020 Olympic host has yet to claim gold (4 silver, 10 bronze).
