The UK Is Hosting The Mermaid Olympics This Year
Mermaids are obviously the dream, with their long, flowing locks and glamorous tails.
And now the UK is set to hold a massive sporting event dedicated to them.
The Merlympics is coming here after a successful run in Germany last year - and it looks insane.
The BBC sports reporter Mike Bushell has been practising his mermaid skills with a special training class in Dorset.
