The Medley Relay

Medley Relay is an event in the  Olympics , and is one spectacular  sport. It only has swimming and four different stroke that go in this particular order Backstroke , Breaststroke , Butterfly,and freestyle. For each stroke there is one person.

...The aim of the event is to swim as fast as you can and touch the end with your hand. They have really strict rules about how you do your strokes and whether you actually touch the end with . Like you have to do the right strokes , the right turns at the end of each end.

You need a swimsuit so you can swim, and a swimming cap. The reason why you need a swimsuit and a cap is because no one wants to swim in swim in jeans and a T-Shirt it drags because it drags in  the water and makes you go slow. The cap is for wearing on your head so if you don’t have one on you will go slower because your hair will get stuck in the water.

...You need to be very very fit to go through a whole 50 meter pool without stopping. You need to know how to swim fast and know the stroke that you have to do. Also you need to know how to turn around and touch the end fast so you can win . To be a swimmer you need to have very strong arms ,so you can do nice strong strokes.

... I think this sport is incredible. Because it has four types of strokes and four different people involved in it . I’ve never heard of another sport like this it is amazing.
