Just a Few Of My Favorite Swim Technique Videos

Real Swimmers
Thorpey. From the side and front on. Notice the acute elbow bend under the body.



Grant Hackett. Powerful but so much purchase under the water


Scott Neyedli. 44 min swim Ironman split.


For an interesting video for a conventionally ugly (high frequency) but effective swimming stroke of World Triathlon Champion Jodie Swallow click here.

Mr. Smooth! Their take on the "ideal stroke". Notice the exaggerated cocked wrist during the first part of the catch phase. Sign up on their webpage for a great blog, one of the few email lists I'm subscribed to.

Virtual-Swim.com. This is getting old now but still interesting to watch. Virtualizes the strokes of world record holders. Take a bit of playing around but you can observe from a variety of angles. Click here.

I offer swim stroke analysis, both online and in person. More details on my coaching website here.
