All this glitz, glamor and waterproof eye shadow can only mean one thing: synchronized swimming.

The Australians sported an outfit Thursday that appeared to feature an outline of the Kremlin, and danced to a remix of 'Back in the USSR'.

Egypt, Japan, China and Great Britain then followed with a lot of sequins and bright colors.

But it was Canada who really pulled it out of the bag, playing to the home crowd. Soccer ball swim caps set the tone, with the competitors rolling into the pool through human goal posts and performing flying soccer kicks.
