Both are correct. The one-syllable shortening has become so acceptable that both the OED and Merriam-Webster have entries for it. Both sync and synch are given as spellings,

"McKay" is pronounced Mc-Kai (eye) by the family, BTW.

I love watching this team when they are fully sync'd. They seem to end up 3rd or 4th in many competitions for some reason.

BTW, I think they are doing a back 3.5 off the 10m tower. If you've never been there, it is worth going up to consider jumping off.

Meaghan is just 155cm tall and Caeli is 160cm. These are not big women, though they appear to be compared to the tiny Chinese divers.

Meaghan & Caeli won the competition.

Caeli won the individual 10m competition a few hrs ago.
