It takes no talent to swim, you just have to move your arms and legs, It should not be considered a sport

Con

In football you move your arms and legs, in soccer you move your arms and legs, both of these are considered a sport so therefore your argument is invalid.

Okay, first of all in football and soccer you need physical attributes, in swimming you can be very skinny and not athletic and still be a good swimmer. When we say the word "sport" we think about athletics and talent. Not skinny weak people

Look at how much time swimmers spend in the pool/ the gym" There is more technique involved in swimming then there is Baseball, Football, etc". Plus most swimmers are more in shape then football players. How many football players out there that are at least 300 pounds that all they do is hit someone? and they can't run miles, while you have swimmers who aren't skinny but built that are able to run several miles straight..
