When you're swimming and working hard, do you sweat in the water? Obviously you can't feel it as you're wet.

Competitive swimmers lose about 600ml of sweat during their typical training session (mean distance = 4km, mean time = approximately 1 hour of training).
Swimmers do sweat, although at rates that are lower than land-trained athletes. Swimmers are able to replace their fluid losses during the session by drinking from water bottles kept at the end of the pool.
