Sport specific information

Why this sport?
"Sport has kept me alive, it helped improve the functioning of my organs and body. In my situation, the prospects of survival are slim - we're talking about an average age of 40 and I am 56. I think I have passed all expectations. If I didn't swim, my health would be at risk."
