Best Answer

Swimming is the use of the body, sometimes with aids such as flippers or boards, to propel the body through the water. It is a popular leisure activity for most of the world, and also a major competition sport in many countries. Several other sports have also developed from specific aspects of swimming (e.g. diving, synchronised swimming) and in others it is a large aspect of that sport, for example in Water Polo.

What is an adjective for swimming?

Swimming can be an adjective, e.g. swimming trunks, or 'a swimming head'. However, it can also be a noun, e.g. 'the sport of swimming', or a verb, 'the boy was swimming'.
