Whether you like it or not, swimming as a sport isn't given enough credit for how hard it can be, amirite?

As a swimmer myself, I constantly get asked questions about why it's a sport. It's a lot harder than it looks, especially if you get water up your nose/into your goggles during a race. :/

I've been swimming for the past 10 years of my life and it's the most rewarding sport I've ever done and I've never been in better shape! We had a couple of football players and wrestlers try out our men's team and they all quit within the first week...

THANK YOU! Someone finally realizes what a physically and mentally intense sport swimming is! Nobody gets it, they just make fun of my one-piece and goggle tan lines!

I think swimming IS an intense sport and everyone I talk to gives it easily the most credit out of all the Olympic sports. Never met anyone who thought it was stupid.
