Synchronised office swimming

A group of Russian women have become internet stars after performing a synchronised swimming routine - at their desks.

The women, who work for an architects' firm, filmed their routine for an Olympics-themed competition, reports The Sun.

They beat hundreds of other entries to scoop the £3,500 first prize - and their video has attracted more than a million hits on YouTube.

The clip was filmed secretly during lunch breaks. Worker Mosha Dugina said: "We were all really energetic and enthusiastic to do it.

"It was such a breath of fresh air to do something where we got the chance to show off a little and show people that we have beautiful long legs.

"Most of the time we just sit by our desks and all everyone normally sees is our top halves."

Ilya Korneev from competition organisers said: "The competition attracted hundreds of applications, but it was apparent from early on that there was going to be one clear winner.

"We thought that was the finish, but the girls' success continued when the clip went on to Europe. The clip attracted over a million views in its first few weeks."
