Twenty Year Medal Table for Synchronised Swimming

Summer Olympic Games 1996 – 2012

Open Make Up For Ever 2013 - Team - Japan - 09

There are two eras of Olympic synchronised swimming. The first was between 1984 and 1996, when the United States and Canada won every gold and silver between them, and the second is since 2000, when Russia has always been victorious. The only constant is Japan, which has consistently won medals in both eras, thanks to coach Masayo Imura.

Imura left for China, resulting in its inevitable rise and Japan’s first ever Games without a medal at London 2012. Now that she has returned, a return to the podium looks likely.

Anastasia Davydova has accumulated five gold medals for Russia, a record which could be equalled by two of its team for this year, Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina.
