Why this sport?
"You may not believe it, but when I was young I hated the water to an extraordinary degree. My parents forced me to go to the swimming pool to learn how to swim. They had their philosophy in this coercion, as we were living near the Nile. The decision to join the swimming pool to learn came from fear of going to the Nile with my friends."
