Which is correct?

Example 1: We want to emphasize the importance of running, swimming, and dancing.

Example 2: We want to emphasize the importance of running, of swimming, and of dancing.

  • They're both correct, but the first is better stylistically (tighter; not as clunky). – Wordster Oct 22 '18 at 17:53

The first sentence is better as we traditionally use one linking word /here: preposition/ with homogeneous parts of the sentence. The second sentence is acceptable, but it sounds rather formal.
