It's not uncommon for synchronized swimming teams to pick a song from their nation's history. Australia, however, may have wished that they picked something a little deeper from their timeline.
The Brisbane Times reported that Australia's final choice for a song to synchronize to was "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC.
The team and the coach decided on the song for their final performance together and they admitted that it was a risky move, but they hoped the quirky choice would sway the judges to their side.
That didn't happen. The team got a score of 77.430, putting them in last place among the eight finalists.
It may have been a sad ending, but I'm sure it's for the best. If they did well with a song from their native AC/DC, then the US team might think that playing a Molly Hatchet song during the 2016 Games would be a good idea.
