I have been very fortunate recently to have been cast in a TV advert for Kuoni Travel because they needed the skills of a synchro swimmer.
Not only did I get a nice little paycheck, but I was also given the chance to travel to the beautiful Maldives to film the advert.
Before my Kuoni "fame" :) my synchro skills were also utilized professionally on an episode of Celebrity Come Dine with Me, at a Hair Magazine award show and at a private party.
There are now professional groups of former synchro swimmers popping up everywhere, including the UK! Take a look at some of them below and let me know if there are any others I'm missing out.
Aquabatix (London, England)
Aqualillies (started in Los Angeles, but now have Lillies in Miami, New York, Las Vegas and in Canada!)
AquaBeauties (Las Vegas, USA)
AquaArtist (started in Los Vegas, but now have Artists in Los Angeles, San Francisco, but also Italy, France, China, Japan!)
AJ Show (Russia)
You never know AquaStars... you might just end up travelling the world thanks to your synchro skills!
