The Medley relay

As far as we know, the medley relay is one of the most popular sport in the olympics. Four types of swimming in a specific order, are involved in this event it gets carried on by each contestant.

The aim of the game is to win the race and go as fast as you can. and you need to be fit then the other team members.

The swimmers wear suits to reduce drag. Did you know that there is an olympic rule that you have to wear a suit or speedos during a competition for modesty. You also have to wear a hair cap to keep your hair out of the way and to reduce drag. And they use goggles to keep the chlorine out of there eyes. The pool they swim in is 50 meters long and has lanes and lane ropes.

You need to be fit and fast and have a healthy diet. You also need to train hard and use teamwork and build your muscles up. If you don’t train you could get unfit.

I think that the medley relay sounds like fun and could be very tiring at the same time.
