Kristina Makushenko, a synchronized swimming champion from Russia, has been making waves on TikTok by performing jaw-dropping underwater routines to popular songs.
The swimmer, who is from Moscow and started competing in synchronized swimming at age nine, has won gold four times at world championships and twice at European championships.
Since retiring from professional synchronized swimming, Makushenko moved to Miami and started working as a coach. She also launched a TikTok, where she's gone viral for dancing to Beyonce, Justin Bieber and more — all while holding her breath underwater.
"I just love how synchronized swimming embodies the highest level of artistry and fluidity and how it allows you to combine your emotions with music," she has said.
Here's a look at some of her top clips:

Clocks have never looked more graceful.

How she's able to stay on beat while underwater remains a mystery.
