History of the emergence and development of swimming

The widespread findings of archaeologists say that people have learned to swim for a very long time. Rather, swimming training was initiated by searching for food and military affairs. In 1515, the first competitions of swimmers were held in Venice. In 1869, the first amateur swimming school was opened in England (“Association of Fans of Sports Swimming of England”). A little later, such schools appeared in Sweden, Germany, Hungary, France, the Netherlands, the USA, New Zealand, Russia, Italy and Austria. At the end of the 19th century, there was a surge in the popularity of water sports, the prerequisite for this was the appearance of artificial pools. From 1896 to today, swimming has been included in the program of the Olympic Games. In 1899, a large championship was held among European countries, which was called “European Championship”. In 1908, the International Swimming Federation (FINA) developed and recorded the main distances for competitions, as well as the procedure for conducting trolleys.
