The 'Water Babies': 9-months, Cant Walk Or Talk, But Can Swim by TheGister: 9:19am On Dec 11, 2012






They are too young to walk and talk but tiny twins William and Ellenita Trykush can swim a length of a 25-metre pool at just nine months old.

The water babies love gliding up and down on their backs, kicking their legs to propel themselves along.nd as this delightful underwater picture shows, they even smile while they’re swimming.

Their achievements are even more astonishing given that they were born by emergency caesarean six weeks early.

The twins’ extraordinary talent emerged during a family holiday to Cyprus in October when they began to swim underwater, unaided and without armbands.

On their return to Cirencester, Gloucestershire, their mother Charlotte, 35, took them to local baby pool at the Cotsworld Leisure Centre where they both suddenly set off on their backs.
‘It was astonishing. First they did five metres, then a width at seven metres, and then a length of 12 metres,’ said French-born Mrs Trykush, a former swimming coach.

We were so excited – all the receptionists and swimming coaches came to watch and were amazed.

‘One of the coaches has been teaching for 20 years and she said she’d never seen anything like it.

‘I think it comes naturally to them, as they are too young to actually learn the strokes.’

Mr and Mrs Trykush, who are both youth workers, married in September 2008 and discovered they were expecting in July last year.

It was only at their 12 week scan that they discovered they were having not one, but two.

Mr Trykush, 49, said: ‘When I saw the two little dots on the screen it was just amazing.

‘I sank to my knees and shouted “Yes!” as if Chelsea had won the cup.

They were born by emergency Caesarean on 7 February, Ellenita first at five pounds (2.24kg) and then William at four-and-half pounds (2.07kg).

William had swallowed a large amount of blood, which had to be sucked out his stomach, and was severely jaundiced.

‘It was a very traumatic birth and William nearly died,’ said Mrs Trykush. ‘They were in incubators for three weeks but I was just so relieved they were going to be OK.

‘They were so premature and small that although I’d intended to take them swimming as soon as possible, I was worried they would get too cold in the water.

most babies can swim at 9 months - were they not swimming in their mother's belly before birth?

You took the words from my mouth. The earlier one teaches a baby to swim, the more efficient the baby becomes.

i have seen babies of 4 months in the pool taking swimming lessons from their mums. it's a natural instinct - it's fear that prevents people from swimming!

Well, babies swim for nine months before they are born.
The twins probably practised using their limbs well by fighting & kicking each other in the womb as latest scan pictures showed about a week ago.

Babies swim and kick in their mothers' wombs many months before their birth. this is not strange.

@Post

This is nothing new. Most babies can swim few weeks after they come out of the womb. White people and their media generally speaking like making a big deal out of nothing often times. They like to sensationalize stuff that is not worth sensationalizing.
