You have a large and broad sternum (V-back)
The water pulling movements start all over the head, so you will need to have strong lats. Your ribs extend throughout your back, from your spine to your shoulders.
The water pulling that is repeated billions of times while swimming will make your lats grow, well, enlarge. The large, wide back is a unique feature of swimmers regardless of distance or main subject. This big back is intimately related to the next thing that will make people understand that you are a swimmer.
You have the shoulders of a swimmer
V-shape is a popular shape for a swimmer. Possessing a large back and shoulders is sometimes uncomfortable when shopping for a shirt, especially and for girls, a medium-sized shirt is always tight at the shoulder, unable to raise your hand or tighten your chest.
And no matter where you go in the world, you can also declare that as a swimmer when looking at the correlation between their waist and shoulder.
You have prominent triceps
Imagine a little bit, an athlete with broad shoulders, a wide back, and small back arm muscles. It looks weird, right? To accommodate the beautifully developed muscles in the back, swimmers are also blessed with large, strong triceps.
For all swimmers, they use triceps to finish a fan cycle, which means during their career they do 3.2 million tricep extensions. With that much activity, the triceps can’t help but be big.
Hair is always wet and shaggy
It’s not too hard to spot an athlete in a crowd by looking at their hair. Even in the winter, they are the ones with wet hair every morning, the collar and shoulders wet all the time. In the summer, when the sun is hot, there are more UV and chlorine rays, the hair will be more shaggy and hard. Not to mention that chlorine turns hair blond without dye and is as dry as straw.
See how many of these things you have? If there is even one factor, congratulations, you are a potential swimmer. You can not u, do not worry, swimming is the sport of all, you can not swim as fast as 1 professional athlete but to swim and even complete sea 1.9km to attend Ironman 70.3 as well will be within your power! Come on, pick up your swimsuit, and go practice!
