Sports are physical activities and swimming is a physical activity, which means that swimming is a sport.
Swimming involves a lot of physical endurance and works all parts of your body. Practices are difficult and require a lot of effort, just like any other sport. Some people misconstrue swimming with simply relaxing in a pool or swimming laps passively, both of which are not what actual competitive swimming involves.

swimming requires competition and it is very physical. also it is in the Olympics.
Swimming is a way to not drown, if not dying is a sport then we are all pretty good at it, and grandma is a world champion
Its a activity
