Russian Synchronised Swimmers Grab Gold With Geektastic Routine

Last week we reported about an Olympic gymnast whose routine was set to music from Zelda , but now the Olymics just got even geekier.

Russian synchronized swimming duo Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina took with a routine set to music from Dario Argento’s horror flick Suspiria , music from Sleepy Hollow and music from Amelie . And to complete the mood they dressed up like freaky puppets from a Tim Burton animation.

Thank God the outcome wasn’t a nightmare…
