Surprised that swimming in syrup is just as fast. Figured it would make you slow as, molasses. Guess you don't have to stop for Gatorade or goo breaks tho. Wonder if you can swim faster in stirrups. As for inhaling or exhaling in syrup....

The idea has also been investigated by the Mythbuster guys: Swimming in Syrup.
