Description Jozsef Nagy was born and raised in Hungary and may know more about the breaststroke than anyone in the world. Not surprisingly, Jozsef Nagy was a breaststroker himself. He won the Hungarian Jr. National Championship in 1973 and competed for Hungary internationally. After he retired from swimming in 1976, he studied physical education at the University of Budapest and earned a prestigious Master Coach certificate. During this time, he read an article on the pattern of ocean waves by Nobel physicist Richard Feynman. Applying principles of physics to swimming, the idea for “wave action breaststroke” was born. It was originally just a theory, created on paper – but then proven in “practice” by Janos Dzvonyar, who placed 5th in the Moscow Olympic Games of 1980. Until Nagy came along, breaststrokers glided along the surface like alligators. Their bodies rode low in the water, with only their backs and the crowns of their heads visible. In the 1980’s, breaststrokers began to resemble buoys bobbing in the water as the stroke became more vertical. In 1986, Nagy moved to the United States and began coaching Mike Barrowman, the first swimmer to perfect “the wave” by channeling his power into smooth, undulating motions. To help Barrowman grasp the idea, Nagy showed him footage of a cheetah on the run. “A cheetah keeps his head down and lifts his shoulders to run,” Barrowman said, “It really did help me to get a mental picture of what the shoulders needed to do in the stroke.” Between 1988 and 1992, Barrowman dominated 200m breaststroke, winning 15 of 16 major national and international competitions and the world record he set at the Barcelona Olympic Games held for ten years. In addition to Barrowman, Nagy coached swimmers from four different nations to international success including, Roque Santos of the USA, Sergio Lopez of Spain, Gabriella Cespo and Norbert Rozsa of Hungary, and Canada’s Annamay Pierse.

World Winter Swimming Championships

World Winter Swimming Championships

Plunging into ice cold water to compete in a swimming race did not sound like fun, but for nearly 1500 participants the World Winter Swimming Championships was the highlight of their year. Organisers in Tallinn had built the pool area adjacent to the harbour side, which measured 25 x 12 metres, with 10 lanes. There was a festival atmosphere with hot Jacuzzis and saunas where competitors could warm up after their ice cold heats. Races distances were 25 or 50 metres, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle as well as 4 x 25 metre team relays. According to most of the swimmers it gives you a real legal ‘buzz’ making them feel thoroughly awake and revitalised. Many also are quick to report the therapeutic benefits of cold water swimming.

RNLI Warn Young Men of the Risk of Drowning on UK Coastline

RNLI Warn Young Men of the Risk of Drowning on UK Coastline

New research1 from the RNLI reveals nearly all young men aged 16-35 (98%) would share advice with their male friends, but less than half (41%) have offered advice about safety issues. Meanwhile, coastal fatality figures2 released by the RNLI reveal of the 109 people who died at the UK coast in 2017, 91% of them were men. This August the charity’s Respect the Water campaign is encouraging young men to share two survival skills with friends that could save their lives: • If you see someone struggling in the water at the coast, call 999 or 112 immediately and ask for the Coastguard. Don’t go in after them – you may get into trouble yourself. • If you are in trouble in cold water, fight your instinct to swim hard or thrash about, as this could lead to breathing in water and drowning. Instead, relax and FLOAT on your back, until you have regained control of your breathing. Ross Macleod, RNLI Respect the Water Manager, says: ‘August is a notoriously busy month on the coast, which draws groups of friends to our amazing beaches to relax and let off steam during the holidays. But sadly this also means more young men getting into difficulty in the water or tragically losing their lives. ‘Our research shows 70% of young men aged 16-35 admit to having been in a dangerous or scary situation alongside their male friends, with 35% of those revealing potentially dangerous water was a factor. So we’re calling on guys to be aware of the risks at the coast, and to look out for their mates by remembering and sharing key survival skills. ‘Stereotyping would say men don’t talk openly with their mates, but our survey suggests nearly all men share advice with their friends. With less than half revealing they offer advice about safety issues, we believe it’s important to urge more men to chat to their mates about what to do in a dangerous situation at the coast, to save more lives. A simple conversation may be all it takes to truly look out for your mates.’ Over the past 5 years, 98 people have died at the UK coast during the month of August, making it one of the deadliest months for coastal fatalities, joint only with July. If you do see a friend in trouble in the water at the coast, fight your instinctive reaction to go in after them, as this puts you at risk of getting in trouble yourself. The best way to help is to call 999 or 112 immediately and ask for the Coastguard. You can try to find something that floats and throw it to them, or tell them to FLOAT on their back until help arrives. If you find yourself in trouble in cold water your natural reaction can be to panic and thrash around, which increases the chances of breathing in water and drowning. The best thing to do in this situation is FLOAT on your back, keeping your airway clear until you can control your breathing. You can then plan your next move to safety. Visit RespectTheWater.com and see the RNLI’s key steps to floating, designed to help give people the confidence to be able to FLOAT if they find themselves in trouble in cold water. Anyone planning a trip to the beach is advised by the RNLI to choose a lifeguarded beach and swim between the red and yellow flags, which is the area most closely monitored by the lifeguards. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION In 2017 the Respect the Water FLOAT advice helped saved the lives of seven people3. The 2018 campaign will run throughout the summer with advertising across cinema, outdoor posters, radio, online, and catch-up TV channels. The RNLI is asking people to visit RespectTheWater.com where they will find more information on floating. On social media search #RespectTheWater #FloatToLive. WEBLINKS http://www.rnli.org.uk

IAKS International Swimming Pool Conference

IAKS International Swimming Pool Conference

The first-ever swimming pool seminar specifically devoted to the exchange of international expertise among operators, owners, designers, consultants and manufacturers took place in Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) on 12 and 13 September 2018. The event started with a tour of Hebburn Central designed by IAKS member Michael Hall of FaulknerBrowns Architects. This is a municipal, multifunctional pool plus a gym combined on the English principle with non-bathing usage (in this case a library) . With such an approach, Sport England’s idea is that people come to the facility for a non-sports activity and witness sports activities inspiring them to take up physical exercise. The challenge for the future will be to mobilise people previously uninterested in physical activity.
