Synchronized Swimmer Or Drag Queen: An Olympic History

Synchronized swimming may just be the most difficult sport in the Olympic games. It is basically like gymnastics, only with half the oxygen and in a far, far more restrictive element.

It got us thinking however, what is the difference between these ladies and drag queens, besides the whole anatomy thing. Get dolled up, dressed to the nines and then go perform your heart out. And if you aren’t buying it, check out the gallery above.

Maybe the cast of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race can enter the team event come 2016 in Rio.
