Why is it that you cannot translate this as "She goes in the pool to swim"? If "у" is "in" or "at" and in English we say, "go in the pool" when we want to be physically swimming in it, I don't understand the emphasis on "going to the pool" being the only right answer, even though they both make sense...

"She goes" should be translated as "вона ходить", like regularly. "Вона іде" is "she's going", because it's happening right now.
