What are the international swimming competitions?
Ancient swimming was produced by ancient people who lived in rivers, lakes and seas. In order to survive, the ancients had to catch water birds and fish as food in the water. By observing and imitating the movements of fish, frogs and other animals swimming in the water, they gradually learned to swim. Today, swimming has become a standard sport.
