The Sport of Wild Swimming
The Sport of Wild Swimming
It seems swimming is a way for people to get back in touch with nature. People feel something special when they emerge themselves in water. Wild swimming is a way for people to bypass the slightly crazy legislation, rules and regulations that affect everything that they do today. Health and safety rules have gone a little overboard these days with everything having some sort of legislation attached to it. With all these rules and regulations, people have taken to wild swimming as a way to rebel. For those people who have an extreme streak, wild swimming is a great way for them to express themselves. Wild Swimming is an activity that takes place all over the UK. It is different from regular pool swimming or ocean swimming because it is done in lakes and rivers. It is a way for people to get back in touch with nature. Wild swimming is an interesting sport because it is a totally different experience from swimming in chlorinated pools with crowds of other swimmers all vying for space. It is a way for people to connect with their environment. As it gains in popularity we will probably see a wild swimming competition emerge in a few years.
