Kate Moss learns synchronised swimmingBy ANI

LONDON - It looks like Kate Moss has developed a liking for synchronised swimming.
And she has even roped in supermodel pal Naomi Campbell to join her in the newest obsession.
Moss has been spotted religiously practising her underwater ballet moves on holiday in Thailand.
“Kate has spent five days solid preparing for this synchronised swimming display,” the Mirror quoted an onlooker as saying.
“Underwater music was piped through her hotel pool, allowing her to practise her moves and refine the art of water ballet. Sporting a nose clip and floral swimming cap - worn ironically - she had a hotel worker download an online handbook so she could learn all the moves.
“Kate has perfected all the basic sculling moves and twirls, plus the eggbeater - basically treading water - but has really struggled with the crane which requires a great deal of core strength,” the onlooker added.
The model’s hard work was all in preparation for a big performance at her 3,000-pounds-a-night villa in Phuket, says a source.
The source said: “Last night she invited a group of model friends, including Naomi, to her villa for the show. It was a roaring success and everyone was in hysterics watching Kate and co. pirouetting underwater.
“The only blip in the evening was when a rather tipsy Kate tried to jump back in the pool at midnight for an impromptu solo performance.
“Boyfriend Jamie Hince had to physically hold her back. But Kate reckons it’s been amazing for her bum and tum, and has really firmed her up,” the source added. (ANI)
