Until holidays, I couldn't swim at all, and school wasn't helpful.
Since there was a swimming pool near of us during our sojourn, my father decided to teach me how to doggy paddle (what school don't teach), then it became suddenly easier. I was proud of myself since water was one of my biggest fear. But I still don't have awesome skills, but I guess I can stay aflot (as long as I'm not in a deep lake of course).

It's apparently mandatory in my school.

I am really good at swimming but don't take part in competitions. My granddad used to be a swimming coach and he taught me.

While I don't swim competitively anymore, I used to, for quite some time. I can still swim very well.

I'm actually between the fourth and fifth option, since all I can do is dog paddle my way to the surface, but if I have something to hold on to rather it be in the pool or open water like a lake or beach or river, I should be fine.

I love to swim, but I'm not a very strong swimmer. I can swim well enough if I'm completely under water, but can't hold my breath long. When it comes to like front/back strokes and such, I suck. I just doggy paddle if my head is above the water and I can't touch the ground

I used to LOVE swimming; as a child I practically lived in the water, be it pools, the ocean or lakes, I was there.
But now, as I am getting older and understand more about the world, I have become a bit germaphobic and that is why I am unable to get myself swimming anymore Q^Q I miss it, but at the same time I am too worried of anything that would lurk there that I refuse to go. This is why I probably could not last very long in the water anymore, though I could swim some small distances? I would likely just get tired soon ^^'

Living in the humid and hot state of Florida, I eventually did have to learn how to swim. So I can swim, but I don't often. (Mostly because I hate sunscreen.)
