Swimming

Swimming

When a casual swimmer thinks of swimming, he or she might imagine doing lazy laps in the cool waters of the pool. But to the RI swimmers, we think of years of dedication, discipline and perseverance, whether in trying to perfect our strokes, completing grueling training sessions, or juggling training and studies. Swimming is all about discipline and challenging your limits. Your main goal in every training and race swimming is to keep pushing yourself ever harder. 

Yet swimming is not just an individual sport. In the pool, we are competitors, but when the race is over, we are best friends. During training, we are always pushing one another, while having fun at the same time. Before every race, we encourage one another; during the race, we cheer as loudly as we can for one another; and after the race, we congratulate one another.

The RI swimming team is a family. Besides taking part in competitions together, monthly morning trainings allow us to form strong bonds as a team. The talent present in our team allows everyone to tap on one another’s knowledge of the sports. Despite our small team size, we have achieved excellent results in various competitions.
