Swimming Swimming is a popular sport in the world today. Swimming helps heal injuries & keep you fit. There are now many different strokes & famous swimmers. Swimming is a huge part of many cultures. When people think swimming they picture someone swimming freestyle, but did you know that there are many different types of strokes?
Breaststroke Breaststroke – Breaststroke is my best stroke because I find it easy to propel myself through the water. In breaststroke you need to use both your arms & legs in the same motion that a frog swims in. This stroke is a very common stroke today.
Backstroke - I don’t like backstroke because I always sink, even though I know the proper technique. Backstroke is similar to freestyle except you swim backwards, but backstroke comes with downsides, for example you can’t exactly know when your about to hit the end of the pool. Backstroke
Butterfly – Butterfly the hardest of them all. This is a very difficult stroke because you swim with both arms at the same time whilst partially out of the water. Butterfly is a great stroke to keep you fit & healthy through out life. Butterfly
Freestyle Freestyle – Freestyle is a very common stroke among swimmers & is the main swim style. In freestyle you move your arms in an oval sort of motion & kick normally. It is a great stroke to be able to swim.
