    So basically it tends to be the most common sport ever.

    Whats you're favorite place to swim?
    How many seconds can you stay under water?
    When did you learn?
    ..etc etc.

    Do tell.

    I'm on the swim team. :con:

    I love swimming in pools. And the ocean. But chlorine is the place to be.
    My stroke is 50 freestyle sprint.

    And I can hold my breath for about 40 + seconds.

    I've been swimming since I was about 2, I learned to swim before eating hard food. :lmfao

    I went competitive near the end of sixth grade. I was actually a soccer player most of my life until I hurt my knee. I couldn't play soccer anymore so I decided to join the swim team and since then I've been doing it.

    Swimming's my life. Fersure.

    I WAS on the swim team...
    Personally, call me insane, but the 100 longcourse butterfly is heaven...

    I might go back in a few months, to my high school team.
    Because I still have my four suits just...sitting there. They're CRYING!

    *emo sigh*

    Love the sport...

    I love swimming.

    Haven't done it in ages, but I actually really really love it when I'm in the water.

    I'm huge fan of swimming, I've played waterpolo for the last 5 years.
    I'm not that great at race-swimming, but I've always managed to get into my school's interschool team each year. We suck though XD
    I love swimming anywhere, the ocean, pools, lakes.
    I swam all the way across a lake the other week o.o

    I love swimming!Wow
    I like doing that in pools though, or mountain rivers(big ones, duh!). I don't feel safe in lakes, for some reason. I'm weird like that.
    I enjoy it so much...In Love it's just so comfortable, and refreshing and everything...
    Plus, lmfao you don't sweat.[yes, I know, you do, but hey, no one can tell, not even you.]

    I love swimming, I practically grew up with my parents forcing me to do sports since its so healthy and they do it themselves too, I picked swimming as my main sport my specific synchronic swimming... and I enjoy it even though I stopped since earlier in the year to take a break from everything, I should start again O_o Isn't swimming one of the best sports out there since you use all of your muscles? Don't really know but I love doing it =D

    Swimming is my favorite sport. I'm not on a team or anything, but I usually spend the majority of my summer at my grandparents' pool.

    I learned to swim when I was about four. And I can swim the length of the pool without taking a breath, but for time, the last time I checked it was about 45 seconds. Swimming is fun. And I finally perfected my dive last year. =D

    I used to swim loads, but now I can't because to get into the nearest swimming pool you have to pay like, millions of Euros. At my first swimming lesson I nearly drowned when I walked off of a step that went rather deep (I was a short kid, sue me) and my mom had to save me. :XD

    I love swimming. I'm on 3 teams, 4 next year! All my friends think I'm completely crazy to wake up early every morning to swim, but i find it super relaxing. I swim freestyle, and some backstroke. I'm more of a sprinter, and I HATE long course. I swim 100 free, and 100 back. but I also love swimming 50's when I am given the chance [in relays and such] I'v been on a swim team since I was like 6. so it comes pretty naturally to me!! Chlorine is like my life! :D 8) :mrgreen:

    Mmm chlorine is my perfume =)
    I'm hoping to go to Sectionals this year.
    Lol I'll be the little thirteen year old standing next to Ryan Lochte, looking awestruck and in love at the same time.
    I made a bonus time for Sectional's last year...so maybe I'll make it this year :D

    I'm a backstroker and a distance swimmer, but I'm a pretty well rounded swimmer so I'm good at IM's. The 200 free's a strong event for me too.

    I use to be on a swim team and do competitions and such when I was in Primary school. Then I gave it up and put on a load of weight.

    I've started swimming again now though, and try and go two or three times a week. I find it's like the most relaxing exercise there is. :XD
