The 'popularity' of swimming is only worth of the million+ of medals they are giving away during each olympics. If it was not for that, it would just be just one olympic sports among others.

 

T&F is a different beast.

 

Disagree. Swimming is just like track (athletics). It's an essential intuitive human activity.

Disagree with what ? It has nothing to do with the lack of popularity* of the sport outside of the olympics.

 

*popularity as in spectators popularity which was @JoshMartini007point I believe.

 

Besides, that's a very debatable point. There have been billions of people who never learnt how to swimm through historty. I'm not even sure that the majority of people today knows how to swimm.

Popularity as in participation. Popularity as in spectators is asinine to begin with because the most popular sport doesn't even have one medal to its most popular event. But I'd argue its popularity is what brought the million medals, not the other way around.

 

RE: people not swimming.But the people "that matter" do. Centres of power have always been next to a source of water and swimming comes intuitively and naturally.

No it didn't. Please stop. Swimming was neither needed nor seen valuable and certainly didn't come naturaly.

 

And again, it has nothing to do with the topic...

But...underwater track cycling...Flood the whole damn velodrome and use weighted bikes. We might be onto something super urban here.

It has everything to do with the topic as availability has everything to do with popularity. But I will stop if only to avoid further arrogance-tinted hogwash. Crossing water bodies not being valuable in human history has to be among the funniest crap I've heard today. But you do you.
