Is the sound of water and bubbles going past my ears when swimming front crawl loud enough to cause hearing loss?

Is the sound of water and bubbles going past my ears when swimming front crawl loud enough to cause hearing loss?

No: Noise-induced hearing loss is based upon sound intensity and duration of exposure. 90 db is the sound intensity at which exposure for greater than 8 hours per day puts an individual at risk for hearing loss. Examples of 90 db would be hair dryer, motorcycle, blender, etc. The noise exposure from swimming is inadequate to cause such loss.
