From behind the blocks or at the other side,
We scream cheers with proud team pride.
We always cheer - whether rainy or warm,
We'll even stay at your lane through a violent storm!
Screeching, waving, and jumping up and down
We don't care if we look like silly, babbling clowns!
Before a race, we gather our 'mates.
For the race to begin, we anxiously wait!
We shout "Go team, go team, go team, go,
Beat our best times and swim like a pro!
Quick start, fast kicks, don't breath into and outta the wall!
And whatever you do, just make sure you finish and beat them all!"
We build our team spirit and cheer on our peers,
We will swim, we will win, and we will persevere!

This is one poem from a series me and my friend wrote about the fantastic sport of swimming!
