The US swim team decided to do just that and, by the time they arrived at the London 2012 Olympics, they'd already racked up nearly three million views online of their take on pop song Call Me Maybe.
The stars, including 17-time Olympic medallist Michael Phelps, lip-synch their way through the catchy tune in a variety of locations - including on the plane, the team bus and even in the pool.
Posting their musical effort on the video-sharing website YouTube, the team simply added the message: "Swimming is fun!!"
And their fans definitely agree, with thousands posting messages of appreciation.
Perhaps the song choice could be called into question though, with the song a hit for singer Carly Rae Jepsen - who is of course Canadian. Shh, no one tell them!
