Would Conan the cimmerian sink automatically?

Conan the barbarian at thirty years of age has a strenght of 19. He almost never wear armor of any type, but could he wear an armor while swimming (say, a chainmail or plate mail) for at least some rounds before drowning?

Is it nigh impossible to perform this for a character with such a strenght? Keep in mind that it is likely that, in the age where Conan lived , his strenght was unparalleled and no man on the surface of earth could win him in battle- but at the same time wearing an armor while swimming is a tremendously difficult task.

Could he have done that?

If it's just leather armor, then he could have probably managed to swim in it. Metal armor of any type? Probably not without stretching the laws of physics.
