What do you think about swimming as a sports? I like swimming for fun and I am not really good with it but if there's a sport that Ican be good at, I will choose swimming. What about you? Are you a good swimmer?

Yes,it is good that you choose swimming as a sports.For me ,i choose playing badminton as a sports for me.I will got to play badminton with my friends with my friends every Saturday.I did not choose swimming as a sports for me because there is no swimming pool near my house and i only get swimming when i go to my friend's house or holiday trip.If you like swimming just for fun and you are not good in swimming,you can train yourself become a good swimmer when you are swimming.For me,i am not a very good swimmer but i also like swimming because when i am swimming i can relax myself in the pool.

Hi nanayangel, I love swimming since I was a little kid. Of course I learned how to swim from my playmates while swimming in the river nearby my house during those old sweet days. I am not good in swimming but really enjoy the fun of swimming. It’s also a form of good exercise for we could exercise every part of our body while moving in the water. This could promote the blood circulation of our whole body. It’s good for our health. I like watching sport of swimming especially during the Summer Olympic Games occasion or other swimming tournaments. posting and have a great day.

You are totally right my dear. There were lots of funs during our childhood. Swimming was one of the favorite ones. Besides swimming we did have great fun in jungle exploration. We did enjoy cooking very much with the firewood collected from the nearby wood where there was a waterfall that we used to swim. Though I’m not good in swimming anyway I enjoy swimming very much. I would grab any opportunity to swim if I come across any swimming pools in the hotel during vacation. Swimming is really a good balanced of physical exercise. It’s nice to know that you finally have the chance to enjoy swimming after shifted to the province. Naturally a kid would lose lots of fun and joy if he is deprived of a favorable environment for his childhood. You are most welcome and posting.

Yeah. It is actually one of the reasons why we are staying here in the province even though most of the time, our business here isn't doing good. I really want my son to grow up in this place and appreciate the joy that nature can bring.

I love swimming. However I would never be able to do it professionally as a sport. No chance of a gold medal in my future when it comes to swimming. I just do it for great fun and exercise. Not right now though. Its 30 degrees here. brrrrrrrr!

Hi there Marcia! Yeah, me too. But now is the perfect time for swimming here in our area here in the Philippines because it is really shiny. Actually, my sister is in another municipality where she and her batchmates went for an excursion / swimming. Thank you very much for your response.

Hi there Iliaaz! I see. Maybe you should try swimming in water that isn't too deep. Something that is maybe only up to your chest. Just a suggestion, though. Thank you very much for your response.

Yup, swimming is a very good sport as it can make us to have a very good body shape. Much as I like to swim, I just can't become a competent swimmer. I guess I just don't have a knap in it.

Hi there Bombshell! I guess. But I think it's great for losing weight too if you do it regularly. Thank you very much for your response.
