Upon completion of a grid of hyperbolas, deforming themselves along the tiles, @RadioactiveTurtle
began a freestyle spin, churning the milky waters of the regulation competition pool into the eye of a cosmic typhoon, exposing the Maha-pudma and eventually the shell of the World Turtle which supports the Earth itself.

In a stunning move in the final round of their series with Seahorse Prep, the Psyhigh Psychos synchronized swim team made history with a mesmerizing mid-performance transformation of the entire squad into enormous sea turtles.
“It must be something in the water,” said assistant coach and clairvoyant history teacher Cheloni Testudine. “@RadioactiveTurtle
has definitely brought that “something extra” that the team has been lacking for the past few years.”
Judges gave the routine an unprecedented perfect 11+ score to the finale, which brought the entire audience—and supporters of both teams—to a standing ovation in the bleachers at the Psyhigh Arcane Aquatics Center. The Psychos successfully formed the Escher Star—a nonconvex regular polyhedron—which had never before been attempted in competition.
“I’m still dizzy just thinking about it” commented Kate Regress, mother of one of the now transformed team members. “It was turtles all the way down.”

How long can you hold your breath? Have you been approached with any sponsorships? Will we soon see some corporate logos on your shell? And are you concerned about the meteor?
