I love swimming. I've been swimming since I was four years old. I have achieved my bronze, silver and gold award and I'm in stage ten swimming at the moment. I've made lots of friends while swimming. Some things are harder than others and some can take a lot of resilience and more than one attempt. When I did my gold award I didn't do the fun bit of swimming at the end because I hadn't finished everything and I decided that finishing was more important than doing something I can do every week. I realised while doing swimming there is more to it than swimming lengths and jumping and diving you can do water safety, learn how to save someone from drowning and even play fun games. Swimming can look hard or you could think it's hard but always keep trying because you can't get anything perfect in one attempt.
