Swimming competitions mainly aim at athletes completing a set distance in a pool of international standards, in the shortest period of time possible. Events differ in terms of distance and swimming style, and a team medley of swimmers competing together is also an event which has been accepted into the Olympics.
Swimming has been a part of survival instincts for humans since the dawn of humankind to both transverse bodies of water and escape from aquatic attacks. It first became an organized race in the !9th Century in England, and the 1924 Olympics were the first to use modern 50-metre swimming pools with marked lanes.
