According to the Olympics, the fastest swim style is the front crawl and the fastest event is the 50m freestyle men's.

The world record right now for the 50m freestyle is 21.28 seconds.

Little Math here:-

50 meters = 0.05 kilometers = 0.031 miles

Since,

Speed = distance/ time time in hours = 21.28 X 0.00027 (approx.)

= 0.031/ 0.005894 = 0.005894 hours

= 5.25 miles/hour

To feel the speed, I imagine myself on the treadmill with an incline of 2( remember its water and it has higher viscosity than air) and running at 5.2 miles an hour. Which is pretty fast according to me, you see for yourself.
