On July 6 former IMF Manging Director (MD) Christine Lagarde visited the NPR show “Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me.”  Among many fascinating facts, Mme Lagarde revealed that she was once a member of the French National Synchronized Swimming Team.  She then shares a delectable tidbit of information about that sport.  Teaser: she explains why participants do not want clean-shaven legs.  Much hilarity ensues.
