Swimming is better because swimmers are stronger because the sport is harder and a harder thing is better for you.

Con

I accept the debate. I will rebut my opponent's case and make my own case this round.

The BoP is on Pro, because Pro needs to prove why Swimming is better than Soccer.

777777Pro's case777777

Pro says that swimming is better because swimmers are stronger. Are all swimmers stronger? No. The sport is harder? Not always. If you have a soccer competition, you have to run a lot.

"Soccer: 7 miles
A large field, a fast moving ball, and rare substitutions mean soccer players can expect to log some heavy mileage over 90-plus minutes. Midfielders tend to run the most, sometimes reaching nearly 9.5 miles,according to SportVU. [1]"

This shows that swimming isn't harder. Soccer needs hand-eye-coordination, when in swimming you just need speed at tactics. You need to dribble and master many skills. I believe that soccer is much of a harder sport.


111111Con's case11111111

My argument about soccer being a harder sport was already argued in my section of Pro's case. My second argument is that it is very hard to actually play swimming in circumstances. What do you need? You need a place where lots of water and the place has to be safe. In soccer, you just need a ball, to sticks for the goals, and players. This is why soccer is one of the best sports because it is the easiest to play. Swimming is much harder to play though. This is another reason why soccer is much better

Conclusion

For these reasons, vote for Con.
