Synchronized swimming at the 2008 Summer Olympics - Women's team

The women's team synchronized swimming event at the 2008 Summer Olympics will be held on 22 August and 23 August.

Eight teams will compete, each consisting of eight swimmers. There will be a single round of competition. Each team will present two routines: the technical routine and the free routine. The technical routine consists of twelve required elements, which must be completed in order and within a time of between 2 minutes 35 seconds and 3 minutes 5 seconds. The free routine has no restrictions other than time; this routine must last between 3 minutes 45 seconds and 4 minutes 15 seconds.

For each routine, the team will be judged by two panels of five judges each. One panel is the technical jury, the other is the artistic jury. Each judge gives marks of between 0 and 10. The highest and lowest score from each panel are dropped, leaving a total of six scores which are then summed to give the routine's score. The scores of the two routines are then added to give a final score for the team.
