When you think of synchronized swimmers, you might imagine their legs flailing flawlessly above the water and their colorful swim caps bobbing in, out, and all around the surface.

Could you ever perform a meticulously choreographed routine underwater like they do? Have you ever tried?

These synchronized swimmers are enjoying Y-40, the world’s deepest pool, in Italy. Their choreography is entertaining and stunning to watch from outside of the pool, but have you ever imagined what it looks like when watching from underwater?

What about underwater and upside down?

In this stunning video below, you’ll be captivated by exactly that.

Instead of recording a synchronized swimming performance from above water, the video below shows us the routine that takes place behind the scenes and beneath the surface. And it happens to be even more mesmerizing than you might have imagined.

At first, the swimmers look like they’re walking on water. When they break the surface, it looks like they’re falling.

It’s almost eerie at some points, but there’s no denying how beautiful it looks when they move through the water so effortlessly.

This video reveals just how much work and athleticism go into this sport. I couldn’t look away!
