Sample text

The action-reaction principle mentioned earlier in the description of the straight-line pull still applies, but when lift propulsion predominates in a swimming stroke, the reaction is created by a different mechanism. 5 Lift propulsion is created by the hand moving in a curvilinear path (underneath view). b Adapted from Counsilman 1977. 4 A swimmer’s hand moves in a curvilinear path to produce forward lift: (a) front view and (b) side view. Adapted from Counsilman 1977. 5). Counsilman’s findings suggested a different approach to swimming efficiency in all the strokes.

Thierry (1981) was concerned with the wording of the new rule, writing that the swimming public had been led to believe that a “relaxed interpretation of the rule was to be made that allowed the head to submerge, provided the head broke the water level once on each arm cycle” (p. 2). This did not happen, and in Thierry’s opinion, the new wording made the problems facing the stroke and turn judges worse than before. ” He offered the following solution: a part of the head or body shall be above the general surface of the water at least once during each arm stroke.

14 Crawl stroke breathing. From Bachrach 1924. In stating the importance of correct breathing, Handley (1918) added that not only did body position, balance, and rhythm rely largely on efficient head-turning mechanics while breathing but that the ability to swim longer distances relied on a regular supply of oxygen to the working muscles. ” 20 Breakthrough Swimming The addition of improved breathing techniques to the American crawl soon enabled swimmers to establish records over the longer distances.
