Medley Swimming Relay in the Olympics

As far as we know in the olympics,the medley relay swimming event is one of the most popular spectator sports. It involves four types of swimming strokes in one order. Each stroke is carried on by a different team member.

The aim of the event is to backstroke two 50 meter lanes and when they get to the first 50 meters they flip and kick off the wall.Then when they finish they touch the other end with their hand and then the other teammate dives in and do the 100 meters and then the routine goes on and on until you and your team finish

...The clothing that is needed in the medley relay competition is a swimsuit, jons or anything that cover their parts. What equipment they use is lane ropes to keep the swimmers,not getting into the other swimmers way. They swim in a 50 m pool.

… The skills that you need to compete is the right movements, great agility,strength and fast and powerful kicks.That will surely make you an olympic athlete...

The medley swimming event is very cool to watch on t.v but would be way better in real life.One of the athletes that I would like to be is Michael Phelps
