How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Five years ago, I was hopping from channel to channel when I came across the World Aquatics Championships. What I saw left me speechless: a team of men was competing in the synchronised swimming category! I couldn't believe it! When I was a boy, I loved this beautiful sport and now, I absolutely want to join a team! I even dream of it all the time. My teammates and I would glide gracefully, we would form perfectly symmetrical patterns which would fade like magic while following bewitching music.
