    Re: Could you form a medley relay using only blood relatives

    No way at all! I am the only swimmer in my family, except for one cousin's husband that never swam competively, but I am told that he is decent enough. Kind of sad when you think about it.... when the ice caps melt and the sea levels rise, my family is going to go extinct ;-)

    Best I can offer: extremely slow 4x 50m medley, me as flyer (ie one-arm fly as a disability exception), possibly with water starts. And I don't know if the breast would be FINA-legal.

    No living parents or grandparents, no children, one sibling. I know my cousins swam recreationally as kids, so assume they can at least survive 50m! Ditto my brother. I'm the only one who's ever competed.

    Interesting results. Only about 3/5th. I would've thought there'd be more swimming families.

    As for my answer, I'm the only one across all generations who even knows how to swim.
