    Thanks to the Michael Phelps-Ryan Lochte rivalry, the 200 Individual Medley is one of the most watched competitive swimming events in the world (Park np). This race combines all four strokes and tests both the skill and the guts of a competitor. The IM is comprised of speed and endurance. To fully understand the complexity of this race, personal experience is required. Although some will never attempt the IM, a complete description allows spectators a more in-depth comprehension as well. Before the start of the Individual Medley, many people stretch or complete range-of-motion land exercises. The point of these is to relax any stiff muscles and warm them up.

I have been swimming for most of my life even if it wasn’t competitive and I had never really focused on my strokes. I already knew that I am supposed to drink water even when I’m swimming, and that I need to stretch before and after I get into the pool to avoid getting hurt. I also already knew that I needed to warm up and cool down before I…

    summer. Well, I thought very wrong about the job being easy. It was the longest seven hours I had ever endured before. The first month went by smoothly. Some kids had sports, and other summer rec activities in the morning, so our mornings were fairly quiet. The July came along. July brought us warm weather, the circus, and swimming lessons. I was completely frightened about bringing the kids to the circus, but once again, my boss assured me that it would be a breeze. I was responsible for 12…

    SCUBA diving was the first activity that I chased as a personal passion. It was the first time I made a decision to excel in this field. I was only 12 years old when I went diving for the first time and the only reason I probably did it because my brother couldn't stop bragging that he had done it and I had not. Although everything changed after that first dive, after that first dive I came back up to surface and all I kept thinking about doing is going back down. I wanted to see more of this…

This is because the air in air-fill spaces will expand when we descend.  Pressure increase with depth  Pressure will be exerted on a diver’s body by his own weight.

    A girl no older than seven was struggling to reach the edge of the pool, gasping for air. I felt myself freeze for a moment as I tried to comprehend what was happening but somehow, maybe by instinct, I found myself shoving my whistle in my mouth.

    “Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.” This quote, by Benjamin Franklin, is very relatable to me. Every time I face a challenge, whether it ends as success or failure, it provides me with a lesson learned. One challenge I can recall where at first I failed but ended up succeeding was when I was in the process of becoming a re-certified lifeguard. I became a certified lifeguard in 2014 at the age of fifteen and loved working as one. During June of 2015, my…
