My Favourite Sport
My love for water began the day I sat in a waddle pool for the first time when I was six months old. Ever since, I have taken to swimming like a fish to water! You guessed right, my favourite sport is swimming.
Every afternoon, I can hardly wait to get back from school and rush to the pool. I dive into the cool water and come up feeling totally refreshed. When I look around and sec the younger children, with floats on their backs, I am reminded of my first few days in the pool. I still remember that moment when my coach pushed me into the water without a float for the first time. The feeling of helplessness underwater for a few seconds soon changed to exhilaration at the knowledge that I could now swim on my own. I have now perfected all the strokes, though freestyle is still my favourite.
My coach says swimming is one of the safest and most effective forms of exercise as it is a great workout for the whole body.
My dream is to represent my country in an international swimming competition and I promise to practice very hard everyday, to realize that dream.
