Male synchronized swimming has had a charming existence in popular culture. It's lampooned on cruise ship comedy nights. "Men Who Swim," a quirky documentary about an all-male swim team in Stockholm, premiered on PBS this year.

Billed as Britain's only men's synchronized swim team, they're kicking-mad about being unable to represent their nation at the London Games.
