Koroleva has revealed that gelatin is the secret ingredient that kept their hair faultless at the London Aquatics Centre on August 7.

"Mix the gelatin with hot water and then paint it onto the hair. Then we put a headpiece over the bun to match the swimsuit, and that completes the look!" she said.

Aside from adding to the overall spectacle, the competitors wear makeup so that the fans and judges can see their faces from far away. But to ensure the cosmetics don't run or smear, the swimmers need to apply heavy, fixed products.

Although they get to indulge in makeup and gelatin, synchronized swimmers are forbidden from wearing jewellery or nail polish.

"Nails must be kept natural during the competition, and they do check to make sure we are not wearing any jewellery, as well," she added.
