Interesting facts: * swimmers wear noseclips * swimmers cannot touch the pool bottom at all during routines (even when they are throwing girls into the air) * for competition swimmers put knox Gelatin in their hair * underwater speakers are used
Olympic swimming is the same as most competitive swimming. There are four strokes; butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle. One thing that MIGHT be different is that usually a 50 is two laps but it is a 50 yar pool so you swim a 50 in one lap.
OK well firstly,
1. Around 65 thousand people (are estimated) in the United States don't know how to swim!! 2. The first recorded swimming race was held in Japan! 3. In freestyle races you can use any stroke but the most popular is the front crawl/freestyle. 4. Women weren't allowed to compete in swimming at the Olympics till 1912! 5. The bikini was named after a U.S nuclear testing site in the South Pacific, in 1946!! 6. Swimming wasn't included as a sport in the Ancient Olympics! Hope that heaps lol!! (:
