Best Swimming Events

The Top Ten
1 200 Butterfly

I am on a small swim team, and I am by far the best on my team at this event, let alone butterfly. Yes, it is very hard, but those who are good at it know that it is very rewarding to be good at it because not many people are.

I love this race. Butterfly is my best stroke, so eight laps of it is a treasure! 200 Butterfly forever.

The hardest event, no doubt! I'm a 200 flyer and a 200 breaststroker, and the fly is the hardest.

2 400 Individual Medley

The three events I'm best at are the 200 breaststroke, 200 fly, and 400 IM. I can tell you for a fact that the 200 breaststroke is the hardest, but the 400 IM is by far the most exciting. Fly is strength, breaststroke is technique, but IM is all about strategy. You have to think about everything you do. It tests everything and is overall so much fun to compete in.

I love this race because it's so incredibly demanding. It separates the weak swimmers from the strong. Not only is it fun to watch, it's fun to swim.

No one can be good at this unless they've put in all the hours. Michael Phelps said it's the hardest, no wonder.

3 100 Butterfly
4 100 Backstroke
5 50 Butterfly
6 200 Individual Medley

This is my favorite event. It is just so fun to swim and has so many interesting aspects about it.

So fun! All of the strokes packed into one race, and you can sprint the whole thing.

7 100 Freestyle

This is the best event by far. It is the perfect distance for swimming.

8 1500/1650 Freestyle
9 200 Breaststroke

This is all technique and known to be the slowest stroke. But once you get it down, it's amazing.

10 50 Freestyle

Definitely the event that is the most fun to swim. Just one length of the pool (or two lengths in yards) and you're already done!

The Contenders
11 800/1000 Freestyle
12 200 Freestyle

Probably the easiest mid-distance event that still is fun and super rewarding to drop time in!

13 200 Backstroke

By far my favorite event! Pure backstroke! Don't worry about breath control. I've made so many record boards for this event, and it's a great event!

Really? 200 fly is number one?! The 200 backstroke is so much better!

14 400/500 Freestyle
15 100 Breaststroke
16 200 Freestyle Relay
17 500 Freestyle

Probably one of the best "Distance" events, even though it isn't that long.

18 50 Breaststroke

Easy to drop time, and it's really fast!

19 100 Individual Medley

Fast-paced and an easy sprint, it incorporates all of the strokes!

20 400 Freestyle

This is a great long course event because there are not too many turns.

21 50 Backstroke
22 Synchronized Swimming

This is the complete package of a workout. Stamina like a marathon runner, strength like a bodybuilder, kick like a football player, flexibility like a gymnast.

It's not just racing back and forth. It's months of blood, sweat, and tears. It's practice after practice after practice. It's pure strength and teamwork.

23 25 Freestyle
24 25 Breaststroke
