Swimming is an individual or team sport that involves using arms and legs to move the body through water. Typically, the sport takes place in pools or in open-water (e.g., in a sea or lake). Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports,[1] with events in butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle, and individual medley. In addition to these individual events, swimmers also take part in relays.

Working Conditions

Becoming a professional swimmer is more of a lifestyle choice than a career. In order to be successful, you will need to keep your body in peak condition at all times, and you will constantly have to refine and develop your technique. You will need to manage your diet, train every single day, and have serious drive and determination. The majority of professional swimmers compete in pool swimming competitions. However, more and more people are beginning to develop an interest in open water swimming, the newest Olympic sport.
