I used to be a very strong swimmer.

I am out of practise now, and cannot swim far.
I am however, able to do proper overarm as when I was a teenager in Sydney I went to Bondi Beach every weekend, all weekend (and am paying for it now with skin problems!).

I loved swimming in my youth and would spend hours in the water, till my skin went wrinkly.

Unfortunately no, which is why the shore and I are close friends

I have never been able to swim,though I did try on more occasions than I can count to learn how to!!! I nearly drowbed as a very young child,and somehow,never managed to et over the fear of water on my face!! It is only since my 40's that I would actually let the shower pour over my actual face,and I would gasp and splutter like a drowning fool when water even got near my nose!!!! I am now able to at least manage THIS thank heavens,but it took a lot to overcome that dreadful feeling. Here I am,with no fear of spiders or critters at all,but threaten to get my face submerged and I panic,REALLY panic!
Can't do a really good overarm, but strong swimmer I am...non the less.

Lived at Coogee Beach, and was at the beach every day except Christmas!
Swimming is one of the best sports.
We used to live near each other!

I used to do a lot of swimming for fitness (5 years ago) but didn't do overarm, was a breastroke and backstroke person...

Was my School's both Senior Champion & Open Champion, two years' in a row.
I take it by 'over arm' you mean Freestyle & not Butterfly?
These awards were for Freestyle, Breastroke & Backstroke. Weren't allowed 'Butterfly' as too 'manly'! But I could do it very well.
Held a 50m Breastroke record which I set at 14. It took another 18 years until it was broken, & then by only one-tenth of a second!
Yes, I was an excellent sprinter-swimmer, not long distance.
Still enjoy swimming & next Summer might try for a place in Masters' Games! One can still dream!
