The annual British Gas Sychronised Swimming Championships is returning to Sheffield tomorrow and Sunday with more than 400 athletes taking to the water in a variety of events.Sychronised swimmers from around the country will test their endurance, athleticism, artistry and skill in solo, duet and team disciplines.

The competition, the highlight in the national synchronised swimming calendar, will see teams perform routines which are at least two thirds underwater.
