US Swim Team Gets Creative When Faced with Airport Boredom


The holiday season is coming up fast, and with it, holiday airport traffic. Long layovers and delays can be draining, but an American swim team managed to find a clever way to entertain themselves through the tedium of being stuck at the airport.

The swim and dive team from the University of Louisville, USA thought they’d have some fun when faced with a seven-hour delay at North Carolina’s Raleigh-Durham International Airport, reports the Herald Sun. The girls from the team acted out hilarious impressions of swimming strokes on the airport travelator, including butterfly, backstroke and freestyle. They even came up with a clever bicycle impression.

The video, posted to Facebook by team member Kelsi Worrell, has over nine million views to date.

What do you do when airport boredom strikes?
