No, your eyes have not deceived you.  Yes, that is Michael Jackson on the front of the Russian synchronized swim team’s swimsuits!

Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina paid tribute to the “King of Pop” by wearing swimsuits with MJ’s image on them and performing their technical duet routine on Sunday to a mix of several Michael Jackson hits.  It was enough to impress most of those who witnessed it, including the judges, who awarded the ladies with a score of 98.200, which was good enough to place them at the top of the standings with two routines to go.

And in case you were wondering, no, this is not the strangest Michael Jackson tribute we have witnessed in the world of sports.
