Open water swimming is a sport that involves swimming in natural bodies of water, such as lakes, rivers, and oceans, as opposed to swimming pools. Participants navigate through the open water, facing challenges such as currents, waves, and varying conditions, with races and events held in distances ranging from short to long distances.
