There are few sports where breathing is so important and such an integral part of the sport as [open water] swimming.
Breathe poorly in turbulent water and swallow water occasionally or get a stomach ache. Breathe without opening your eyes and lose the ability to laterally sight. Breathe effectively in rough water and never swallow water. Breathe efficiently in the open water and swim in a streamlined and balanced fashion.
