Swimming Equipment

with the right swimming equipment you can succeed, goggle caps and the right training swimwear like slix, or speedo or tyr definitely make a difference.


A swimmer must wear a cap, which is a head covering that covers the hair, and allows the swimmer to have more hydrodynamic movement in the water because of less drag from the cap, and caps are usually used to show what team/organization/country that the swimmer is from, and will sometimes show the swimmer’s name on it as well. Another is the swimming suit. These include men and women’s swim suits. Men’s suits are divided into full body suits, ‘jammers’ (goes down to knees), and legless suits, also referred to commonly as “speedos” because of the popular swim wear producer ‘Speedo’.

A poem for Monday…

Wow cool poem, suppose you love swimming training and competing!

Jayney rambles...


The water lures her.

Chlorine envelopes, pounds

her senses, bullies  eyes into goggles

that show her what she wants to have,

a body without pain, a body without him.

She seizes  her chance,

head down, breathing out,

pushing her body forward,

warm with every movement,

believing, again, the  water’s promise.

Two strokes then

up, breathe, he loses his power,

sinks beneath her,

the anchor around his neck,

as the goggles do their rosy work.

On and on she moves,

pushes him down , down and away

with every stroke.

She no longer feels him,

she’s finally free.

She stops, takes a breath,

stands at the water’s edge.

But when the goggles come off,

he’s back and she’s lost the race,

imprisoned again in a girdle of pain.
