Russian Synchronized Swimming Gold Is Scored by... Goblin's "Suspiria"

Posted by on Wed, Aug 8, 2012 at 11:01 AM

Russian synchronized swimmers Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina won a duet Olympic gold medal while performing to the eerie strains of Italian prog group Goblin's "Suspiria," which appears in the soundtrack to the 1977 horror film of the same name by director Dario Argento. Respect to the people who conceived this idea and routine. Let's hope more prog rock and bizarre soundtrack music find their way into the Olympics.
