Ep 14 - Swimming

Swimming comes as second nature for most of us since we all spent 9 months practicing in our mother?s wombs. It may have been dated back as early as 2500 bce in Egypt and thereafter in Roman civilisations where the first heated pool was built in the 1st century BC. It was also practiced as martial training. Swimming became a recreational competitive sport in England where the first indoor swimming pool was built. It later became part of the Olympic schedule in 1896.
