MARYVILLE, Tenn. — Young swimmers dove into the water for the last day of the Smoky Mountain Invitational swim meet. 

It's the 46th year of the swim meet and Sunday's events were for kids 10 and under. 

The swim meet is held every year by the Maryville Fly Dolphins swim teams and attracts swim teams from all over East Tennessee.  

A total of 1,300 swimmers competed over the weekend. 

"Swimming is a great sport physically... it's good to get in shape. It's also a lifelong sport if it's taught when you are young and it's also a really good safe thing to know, how to swim in water," scoring chairperson Rebecca Preston said. 

It is the largest outdoor swim meet in the U.S.
