Description This 2019 step-by-step guide on how to swim efficiently and fast features both under and front views and tips from Danish World-champion in 50m and 100m butterfly, Jeanette Ottesen. First of all, how to swim butterfly with the correct technique and good speed? Butterfly is composed by two butterfly kicks and one stroke. The fist kick occurs during the catch phase when your arms are at the front under water and the second, when your arms are at the hips. The important thing here with your legs is that they´re held together as a mermaid-tail while your arms are moving under and over water together at the same time. Jeanette Ottesen shares her 5 best tips for swimming butterfly with the correct technique (so you don´t get any injuries) and so you move fast through the water. - Be flexible in your chest-area; - Know when to breathe (hint: Just when your arms are moving forward above water); - Enter your hands smoothly (No splash = faster butterfly!); - Kick at the right time; - Breathe relaxed (just like Michael Phelps - and Jeanette!). She gives you her three (+1 extra) best butterfly exercises to improve your technique. Repeat to master them so you can learn how to do them in the right way step-by-step: 1. Sculling dolphin; 2. Dolphin movement; 3. The Basketball (just like playing... in the water). Extra: 1 Stroke and 3 kicks. Jeanette will give you her secret behind swimming SO fast butterfly to become world-champion.

Strength Training to Improve Movement Velocity

Strength Training to Improve Movement Velocity

Presentation by Anthony Blazevich at SSC21. Blazevich is a Professor in Biomechanics at the School of Medical and Health Sciences at Edith Cowan University in Australia, and Director of the Centre for Exercise and Sports Science Research (CESSR). He teaches in the areas of biomechanics, neurophysiology and other curricular units, as well as leading research projects in areas such as sports biomechanics, neurophysiology and physical conditioning.The ability to produce power, or more correctly, to reduce forces while moving at high speeds is very important in many sports. The main organs we use for movement are, of course, the muscles and the muscles are incredibly strong, but they have a big design flaw that is very slow. Thus, to move very quickly, humans and other animals make use of two important strategies. First, they use movement patterns that allow focusing the energy of the muscles in a very small area of the body, like the hands and fingers during throwing. Second, they can store the energy of the muscles in elastic tissues such as tendons, and then get this energy back to produce movement at higher speeds. That is, tendons can be used as power amplifiers. In his presentation, he aims to describe the mechanisms by which humans produce high-speed movements. He also intends to explain the relevance of these topics for the development performance in high-speed athletes. He will also approach the effects of strength and power training on muscle and tendon properties and therefore focus on human ability to move at high speeds.
Motor Behaviour: C. Burnay (SSC21) Infants drowning prevention

Motor Behaviour: C. Burnay (SSC21) Infants drowning prevention

Drowning is the top five leading cause of death among children worldwide and children younger than 4 years are the most represented in the statistics. A set of studies analysed the effect of age, locomotor experience and swimming lessons on babies’ avoidance of bodies of water. The avoidance of the water was tested on 102 infants (Mage= 12.97 ± 2.41 months, MLocomotorExperience= 4.77 ± 2.61 months, MSwimmingSessions= 4.5 ± 9.31) on a water cliff (sudden fall into the water) and on 77 infants (Mage= 12.52 ± 2.94 months, MLocomotorExperience= 5.13 ± 2.99 months, MSwimmingSessions= 6.05 ± 8.58) on a water slope (smooth entrance to the water). Locomotor experience was the best predictor of infants’ avoidance of the water cliff but had no effect on their behaviour on the water slope. The results suggest that while locomotor experience teaches babies to avoid falls into the water, it has no impact on infants’ perception of bodies of water as dangerous environments. Swimming lessons were not linked to infants’ behaviour on the water cliff but on the water slope infants who had attended more then 10 lessons reached the submersion point more than infants who attended less than 10 sessions (p = .030, Fisher's exact test). Prior experience of attending swimming lessons may be related with an increased likelihood of babies entering deep water when it is accessible via a slope.

FINA Extraordinary General Congress 19 Jun 2022

FINA Member Federations voted in support of a new FINA policy on gender inclusion presented at the FINA Extraordinary General Congress 2022. The vote, which was 71.5% in favour of the new policy, took place after Congress heard speeches from representatives of a working group that was set up in November 2021. This working group consisted of three specialist groups - an athlete group, a science and medicine group, and a legal and human rights group. After analysing the conclusions of these groups, FINA developed a new policy that will apply at all FINA events. The policy will also be followed for world record ratification, wherever the competition took place. The full FINA gender inclusion policy can be found at https://bit.ly/3y3Xy2R Included in the policy are proposals for an open competition category. FINA will establish a new working group that will spend the next six months looking at the most effective ways to set up this new category. The new FINA gender inclusion policy comes into effect on 20 June 2022.
