Swimming

Competitive swimming started in Britain around 1830, mostly using breaststroke. Swimming was part of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 in Athens. In 1908, the world swimming association, Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA), was formed. Swimming today is one of the world’s most popular competitive sports.
