Swimming is a sport because it's in the Olympics and you need athletic ability to swim.

Swimming is definitely a sport. We do more yards than a football player, more kicks than a soccer player, and more flips than a cheerleader. We also can burn up to 2,000 calories per two hour practice. Swimming is very demanding. There are no time outs during a race, no second chances. You only have one shot when you race. And the pain is everywhere. Its something only a swimmer can understand.
