How Champions Do It

Table of Contents

blue line

How Champions Do It is a compilation of underwater stroke sequences of world-champion or remarkable swimmers. These are presented with a minimum of content and are left to be viewed as objective records of how strokes are performed in that most critical stage of swimming, the propulsive phase.

In viewing the collages, it is suggested that the following features be kept in mind.

It is hoped these illustrations will be used to understand the swimming characteristics of elite swimmers in a more objective manner than in the rampant trend of subjective assertions in the current swimming dialogue.
