Methods

Observation, Statistics and Comparison

Results

The result indicates that Chinese synchronized swimmers have lagged far behind the world top swimmers. The latter obviously take a lead in several aspects, such as more movements with superior difficulty, innovation of the degree of figure difficulty, diversity and comprehensiveness of technical difficulty in single, continuous movement and entire figures, the degree of difficulty intensified through repetition of a single movement, clear definition of strength and tempo, flawless integration of difficulty with tempo.

Discussion / Conclusions

It can be concluded (1)(3) that the developing trend of the world synchronized swimming free routines reflects the following characteristics: continuous increase of the degree of difficulty in single, continuous movement and entire figures, diversity and comprehensiveness of superior difficulty and technical difficulty intensified, focus on flawless integration of strength with tempo and difficulty with tempo. It is worth noting that the above is just what the Chinese swimmers require to improve in addition to lack of originality and poor endurance.
