  1. Hi Courtney,

    I love to see that you have chosen freestyle swimming for this activity. I personally love swimming and enjoy watching the events when they are televised. Speaking of televised events, Olympic coverage is due to start on Friday 5 August. That is only 2 weeks and 1 day away. Exciting!

    I hope that you're able to watch some of the events, particularly the freestyle swimming. If you can, try to watch Michael Phelps compete. He is an American swimmer who currently holds the Olympic record for most (ever) medals. His present tally is 22 medal!

    Cheers :)
