Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Swimming is my passion! Nowadays, I spend a lot of time at the swimming pool, but I didn't always like that. When I was younger, I hated the smell of chlorine. It used to sting my eyes and my nose, which I couldn't bear! But I guess that over the years, I got used to it. I haven't dared to jump from the high diving board yet, but I know the day will come when I finally have the courage to overcome my fear of heights, and that day, I will climb to the top of that diving board, and I'll let myself go in the void without fear!

Getting that for you now...
