Is there a way to prevent cramps when a person swims for around 2 hours or more? I hate getting cramps and it hurts me a lot. Please respond and Thank You.

I suggest you also dring sports water - water is not enough to keep you dehydrated - such as Gatorade. We lose electrolytes which is bad - gatorade supplies electrolytes and potassium into our system I swim around 2-2.5 hours on weekends. I always bring water and gatorade. I also do warmups and cool down exercises. I also suggest you do warm up to stretch your body before swimming - this will help in avoiding cramps.
