Finland makes the whole world dream [EDITORIAL]

Taking advantage of a "stable" COVID situation, Finland resumed last weekend its synchro season. After eight months of waiting, what a pleasure to finally live again synchronized competitions! With masks and fewer spectators in the arena, back coming and competing at a price.
First of all, the number of tickets was limited in order to avoid large gatherings. Second, the wearing of a mask was mandatory inside the rink. Finally, the spectators were invited to encourage their favorite teams by using sounds rather than shouting. Sanitary measures oblige.
But the game is worthwhile! With the exception of two teams who were unable to participate in the competition, all of the athletes had the chance to present their new programs that were both amazing and creative. And what a pleasure the synchro fans (even behind their computers) had to discover these new creations.

Some teams have even pushed the precision and the look to match their masks with their competition outfits. For example, we saw the Musketeers with a striped mask for their short program, or the Helsinki Rockettes wearing an elegant shiny mask to perfectly match their dresses. The Covid could therefore change the fashion for synchronized skating; who knows?
Special mention to all the people who made this competition possible: the staff, the volunteers, and all the people who took the trouble to disinfect the boards and the athletes' hands after each passage.
Thank you! For a weekend, the synchro world once again made us dream!
