Event Description
Swimming

In the swimming event, the swimmer starts from the starting platform of the 50m-long swimming pool and returns after swimming a distance of 50m or longer within the shortest amount of time, using either a single swimming style or four different swimming styles in a consecutive manner. The four swimming styles are the backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly stroke and freestyle. In a freestyle match, the swimmer can use any swimming style, but most use the crawl stroke, which is the fastest swimming style. Next, the individual medley is conducted in the order of butterfly stroke, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle, whereas the relay match is divided into the freestyle relay, in which 4 swimmers use only freestyle, and the medley relay, in which each swimmer uses different swimming styles (backstroke, breaststroke, butterflystroke, freestyle).

Diving

Diving is an event that demands both agility and courage, and requires the diver to jump acrobatically from a fixed height into the pool, head-first. The diver makes the dive from a 1m/3m/10m springboard, and is given a score from 0-10 points according to the difficulty and excellence of the jump.
The diver must state the style in which he or she will dive in advance, and is given a penalty if he or she dives in a different style.

Synchronized Swimming

Synchronized swimming is a hybrid of swimming, gymnastics and ballet that demands a combination of strength, endurance, flexibility, grace and artistry, as well as exceptional breath control when upside down underwater. It is divided into solos, duets, teams and combination.
When performing routines in competition, competitors will typically wear a nose-clip. Competitors also wear custom swimsuits and headpieces, usually elaborately ecorated, to reflect the type of music to which they are swimming. The costume and music are not judged, but factor into the overall performance and artistic impression.

Water Polo

Water polo is a ball game held in the water. Each team is comprised of six field players and a goalkeeper, and the team with the most goals wins. Excellent water polo players must be capable of repeatedly swimming from end to end of the 30 m swimming pool throughout the match without tiring. The freestyle technique used by a water polo player is different from that used by a normal swimmer, as the player must swim while constantly keeping his or her head out of the water in order to view the field. Since all players except the goalkeeper can only touch the ball with one hand, they must develop the skill of catching and throwing the ball with either hand. Experienced water polo players are capable of catching, passing and shooting the ball in a single movement. The players can also dribble the ball by pushing the ball in front of them. Defending players often make fouls, since they can contact the opponent only when the other is holding the ball, but must not interfere with the course of movement.
