Flippers should be allowed in all competitive swimming, or else shoes should not be allowed in all other sports. Anyone who says otherwise is afraid of losing to someone with superior leg strength.

Kind of a troll remark but you are wrong. Finned swimming competitions do exist (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_world_records_in_finswimming) (<-- LINK).

They haul ass, like 50LCM in 13 seconds!

So there:thhbbb:

Kind of a troll..............

Amazing what 12 year old boys will do for entertainment nowadays, huh? Including creating a handle describing something they aren't mature enough to do.......

I know that some of the meets in AZ had, "anything goes," fun events. They had some kick with fins--and they even had some monofins if people want to try them. There was a swim with paddles and fins too. Of course they were just for fun and weren't submitted as part of the official meet results.
They also had some races of 25s!

For sure a troll. Read the OP username very slowly.
