What is swimming?



Swimming is unlike other sports. It does not include points unless it is a big competition, and if there are points, then it is team points. The goal of competitive swimming is to get the fastest time possible and hit certain qualifying times. Here is the point system: 

1st place: 6 points.

2nd place: 4 points.

3rd place: 3 points.

4th place: 2 points.

5th place: 1 point.




Swimming is considered one of the hardest sports in the world because the water is dense. 

But not only that, swimming is also extremely precise. Even the slightest microscopic mistake can decide between success and failure. That is one of the reasons it is set apart from other sports.


Who is Michael Phelps? 


Michael Phelps is considered the G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time)swimmer, who has won 23 gold medals, and is ranked one of the best Olympians of all time. He was born on June 30, 1985. He was diagnosed with ADHD at 6th grade and he was also diagnosed with Marfan syndrome. “If you reach out your arms and form a T and your wingspan is longer than your height, you can be at risk,” Phelps wrote. Michlael Phelps, indeed, displays the classic symptoms of the disease. His elongated frame is now 193cm – about six feet and four inches on the old scale. But his arm span is considerably more at 208cm. This is dangerous and can decrease life expectancy, but it gives you a considerable advantage in the water.
