After surviving o. Lynam's wisecracks during the LA Olympics to become of the fastest-growing women's sports in

Britain, synchronised swimming is

about to make its first appearance at the Commonwealth Games. At least five countries, including and New Zealand, will be sending teams— but we'll miss the chance of seeing the

Barbados team. England and Canada (the current world champions) are expected to dominate the event, which is divided into six solo and duet ‘iigures’ selected 24 hours beforehand

from a compulsory repertoire of 36

exhausting routines. For Scotland, chasing bronze, Kim Mackintosh, Morwenna Penrose and rescue Caroline Chambers will at least have had the advantage of regular training sessions in the Royal Commonwealth

., Poolthis year.

racers and the divers will be treating the Commonwealth Games as top-class preparation for the World Championships in Madrid ten days later.

Canada will be counting on gold


in Edinburgh from Olympic springboard '

champion Sylvie Bernier, Victor Davis

(200m breaststroke) and Alex Baumann (world record holder for the 200m and 400m individual medley).

Enormous attention will be focused on

12 year-old Higson of Canada, who could become the youngest-ever Commonwealth Games gold medal winner in the breaststroke. The

Australian challenge will be led by Jon

Sieben (200m world butterfly record

holder) and Michele pearson. The best

British hopes should be Sarah Hardcastle and Adrian Moorhouse for

England and Neil Cochran for Scotland.
