A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
adjective: Swimming or floating.
From Latin natare (to swim). Ultimately from the Indo-European root sna- (to swim or flow), which also gave us Sanskrit snan (bath). Earliest documented use: 1460.
“Perhaps no other athlete has been under more pressure to perform at these Games than Freeman. Not Marion Jones in her pursuit of five gold medals. Not Ian Thorpe, the 17-year-old swimming prodigy or any of his natant mates.”
Fran Blinebury; 2000 Sydney Olympic Games; Houston Chronicle; Sep 25, 2000.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:Historians tell the story of the past, novelists the story of the present. -Edmond de Goncourt, writer, critic, and publisher (26 May 1822-1896)
