I know how it feels to be awake on a chilly morning going for endless laps. However, not all this has been in vain, as I have won a few medals, excelled in some races and even lost in others. This essay is a narration of one of the most memorable swimming competition in my life.
It was an early Thursday morning when all the members of the swim team assembled in the school swimming pool for a warm up session on the day of the competition.

If this is the case, would you still give your stamp of approval on competition
Competition is what keeps the market move at such a volatile pace. There will always be a winner and a loser in a competitive environment. There are many agencies, however, like the Competition Commission of the United Kingdom and other competition watchdogs of the European Union that very hard to ensure competition within UK fair and square.
I was just 20 years old that time, yearning to be independent both financially and physically. I was in the look out for a job which will give me the much needed freedom in doing whatever I liked and be the master of myself.
