A move at the end of a synchronized swimming duet routine made Twitter buzz on Tuesday. During their finals routine, Ukrainians Daria Iushko and Kysenia Sydorenko shared a kiss that caused many to ask — did I just see what I think I saw? And is that part of the routine?

To answer the questions, yep, you did see a kiss. But it wasn’t part of their routine or some longstanding tradition from their country. Though it’s common to see Ukrainians kiss each other on the cheeks, the kiss on the lips was surprising.
They just completed a routine that earned them sixth in the Olympics. If they want to smooch after their routine to celebrate? Go for it.
