Swimming: My Favorite Sport
Swimming has been my favorite sport since I was very young. I learned to swim when I was just seven years old. Swimming is a very popular sport. Besides, it provides people with many physical and mental benefits.
There are some reasons why swimming is so popular. First, swimming is a sport for all age groups. Also, it is a lifetime activity. People can learn to swim as young as 4 or 5 years or as old as 50 or 60. All it takes is the right instruction and a desire to get into the pool. Second, swimming is very cheap. You don’t have to spend much money on it. All you need is a swimming suit that makes you feel comfortable and goggles that keep the water out of your eyes. Even though you may have to buy a ticket for the swimming pool, you can probably still afford to go swimming anytime.
