We asked our Speedo fans to show us why they swim, and here are some of our favorite responses. Your love for the water continues to keep us inspired. Dive in!

Tina Marina wrote: swimming makes me feel strong, powerful,energized and at peace. After a workout I feel like I can conquer anything. when Ryan Lochte was interviewed and he told the reporter that he loved the smell of chlorine I could relate. Every swimmer who has spent countless hours training and has a deep abiding love of the sport smiled and nodded in agreement at that moment .

Mary DeLuca wrote: As a stroke survivor and fibromyalgia sufferer, I find water therapy to be the best, least stressful exercise. When I get out of the pool, I feel like a new person. It helps keep my pain and blood pressure manageable.
Hubert Campos wrote: I feel great after swimming. You leave the world, and all your problems in the water. The air tastes deferent, and your body is in a relaxed, and unreal state that is hard to achieve with any other activity.
Renee Kotz wrote: Swimming removes the noise from the universe; it's a rest for my senses. And with my Medley Swim Beads lap counter, I can rest my mind while I exercise my body.
Lauren Rodriguez wrote: It's the one thing that can calm me down after a rough day. I can let my emotions be free at practice. I have my friends (who are more like family) there and I am confident that they will always be there for me. It's a challenge. A challenge that I accept. But mainly, i swim because life without it would be so different. All my emotions bottled up. Never being busy. Not being competitive. And not living life the swimmer way.
