Swimming: my first passion
My passion has always been swimming. I started when I was 4 years old, thanks to my mother who wanted to teach me how to swim because of her fear of water. When I was young I used to go to the swimming pool after lunch, but as for now I had to change hours, so I go there in the evening. I started in a pool with a deep water because where I used to go as a child they didn't have a pool with shallow water for children, but in return, there was a trainer who taught us how to swim very well. During these years I have met a lot of people with whom I’ m still in contact. In all these years I have brought a lot of my friends with me to the swimming pool in order to approach them to swimming. Most of them liked it and still keep going. If I had to choose my favorite style I would choose a particular style that is called BREAST STROKE. It’s a complicated style for many people, but for me it is the easiest and the most relaxing.
It seems strange, but if I had to choose between swimming at sea or in a pool I would choose the pool. Maybe because the pool gives me more security so I feel safer, and also because at sea you may meet some. I love swimming because it gives me wonderful sensations. I feel at ease when I’m in the water, and it helps me to get rid of lots of stress which I accumulate during the week. It’s nice and relaxing, I get rid of all my thoughts for an hour and I concentrate only on a sequence of movements which allows me to move in an environment that is not mine by nature. I think everyone should learn how to swim when they are young because it helps to grow in a very Despite swimming for 15 years, I took part in only one competition. I remember I was shaking even if it wasn't really a competition but it was only a preparation for youngsters.
