Kanrou's opinion - what I think of swimming as a sport

View from the starting block of a competition ...                                Image via WikipediaIn any country, swimming is popular, as it doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman. Some people do swimming for fun, where you play in rivers or seas, which isn't bad, but if you take it as a proper sport, you can enjoy it more.

I think that swimming is suitable for exercise at it moves all of your body. Also, there is no injury, so it is one of the best ways to exercise. Adding to that, as you try harder and harder, you can see the improvement in the times you get. That will make people continue swimming. Also, there is a good point that there is no need for special equipment.

On the opposite hand, there is a problem that swimming is a summer sport. If there is no indoor pool, you can't swim. Also, swimming is an individual sport, which doesn't include co-operation. Moreover, swimming isn't professional, so even if you swim, you don't get paid, which footballers do.
