Did humans evolve the ability to swim? Or is it just luck that we are able to swim?

Many animals like ducks have evolved features to be able to swim. Even not so aquatic animals like a tiger evolved so that its feet can act as paddles. In humans I don’t see any direct feature that has specifically evolved for the purpose of swimming. So is it just luck that we are able to swim and some of our cousins like gorillas are not able to swim? Or did we evolve in some way to be able to swim
