How was it made and how was it played?
Swimming was originated in 1908 in France. The rules for swimming is that if a swimmer commits a violation of the rules that an official sees it, a disqualification (DQ) will happen. DQs also happen when you do these. Freestyle: Walking on the bottom, pulling on a certain kind of rope, not touching the wall on a turn, or not finishing the rest of the race; Backstroke: Pulling or kicking into the wall once a swimmer has turned passed the vertical onto the breast. Turning onto the breast before touching the wall with the hand at the finish of the race; Breaststroke: An illegal kick such as flutter (freestyle), dolphin (butterfly), or scissors (side stroke); not on the breast; alternating movements of the arms; taking two arm strokes or two leg kicks while the head is under water; touching with only one hand at the turns or finish; Butterfly: Alternating movements of the arms or legs; pushing the arms forward under instead of over the water surface; a breaststroke style of kick; touching with only one hand during turns or finish.
How does the game work?
There are individual swimmers in an event, but at the same time time, there can be many for the sport. The length of swimming is how long you want it. It is usually 1 to 2 hours long. There is no scoring in swimming. The dimensions of the swimming pool is that the Olympic-size swimming pools have eight lanes measuring 2.5 m wide. The strategies are to control your legs at the beginning of the race, paying attention on kicking on and off of the walls. Good turns are bad and an effective way to get in front of the others.
The penalties are Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly. The equipment for swimming are goggles, caps, women's practice suits, and men's practice suits. The only leagues for swimming are the Olympics and international competition. Swimming has been around for over a hundred years and it changed by being in the Olympics.
