“I swim because I’m too sexy for a sport that requires clothes”

“I swim because I’m too sexy for a sport that requires clothes” (or “We swim because we are too sexy for a sport that requires clothes”) is a swimming saying that has been printed on many images. “We swim because we are too sexy for a sport that requires clothes” was posted on the website Quoteland on April 22, 2007. “I swim because i am too sexy for a sport requires clothes” was posted on Twitter by Jesse Herndon on May 30, 2009.
 
It’s not known who originated the “too sexy” swimming saying, but it was probably popularized by an image.

6. “WE SWIM BECAUSE WE ARE TOO SEXY FOR A SPORT THAT REQUIRES CLOTHES”
Also consider the fact that swimmers have to stuff their bodies into black spandex more often than someone with a rubber fetish. For girls this job has to be undertaken in pairs and is no mean feat with no cushions of fat to manoeuvre around.
