Being stuck at the airport is kind of the worst, am I right?

NOPE. I’m actually totally wrong. If you’re anything like the women of the University of Lousiville’s swim and dive team, being stuck at the airport is actually an opportunity for awesomeness.

These ladies were stuck at North Carolina’s Raleigh-Durham International Airport for a torturous seven hours last week thanks to a delay—but they didn’t let that keep them down! Instead, they took the opportunity to turn the airport’s moving sidewalk into a simulator for swimming, rowing, and even biking. Because how often do you get that opportunity?

These women have their priorities in order.

Check out teammate Kelsi Worrel’s video of all the hilarity below, because clearly, your life isn’t complete without watching people do the backstroke on an airport moving sidewalk.
