    11) Outside of basketball, who is your favorite athlete, past or present? Micheal Phelps
    lol, my buddies are I were having a discussion about swimming just last night, and concluded that it's a stupid sport. There's nothing wrong with the freestyle events, but what's the point of the other strokes?

    It's like having sprinting events backpedaling, doing side-steps, and skipping.

    "Usain Bolt just set a world record in the 100m skips!!! 13.78 seconds!!!

                                Different strokes exercise different parts of your body. Aside from that, there are certain advantages too: the breastroke gives you excellent visibility; the backstroke avoids any breathing issues and the butterfly is the most fun but physically demanding stroke; are some of them.

                                You really can't compare all of swimming to "sprinting" since sprinting is only one of the events of athletics aside from the long jump, high jump, discus, shotput, etc. So if swimming has other events aside from the freestyle, athletics has other events too aside from sprinting.

                                Sorry but as a swim fan, I just had to put my two cents in.
