NHK World to air Documentary on the human body

How far can athletes push the limits of their body?

The question is central to an exclusive NHK documentary about Russian synchronised swimmers Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina. They won back-to-back Olympic golds in the duet competition.

Using cutting-edge video technology and breathtaking imagery, scientists deliver an unprecedented analysis of the physiological factors behind the pair’s underwater prowess. The result is a spectacular exploration of the human body’s full potential.

Russia’s Golden Mermaids is part of the Miracle Body strand, airing on NHK WORLD on 24 September at 1510 and 2110 and on Sunday 25 September at 0310 and 0910 GMT.
