The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between oxygen demand, stroke rate and swimming velocity in competitive swimmers. The subjects who volunteered for this study were ten trained male swimmers (age, 16.7 +/- 0.4 yrs). VO2peak, swimming velocities at 80% (V80% VO2peak) and 100% (V100% VO2peak) of VO2peak and swimming velocity at the(More)
In this study it was hypothesized that elite butterfly performance is characterized by wave motions with particular frequency, amplitude, and phase characteristics. Particular emphasis was accorded the question of whether 'waves' travel along the body during the butterfly stroke. Selected body landmarks and the center of mass (CM) of eight elite males and(More)
The performances of 335 male and female swimmers competing in 50-, 100-, and 200-m freestyle events at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games were videotaped and analyzed to determine stroke length (SL), stroke rate (SR), starting time (ST), turning times (TI = turn in, TO = turn out), finishing (end) time (ET), and average velocity (AV); relationships were then(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the wave characteristics of breaststroke swimming. Particular emphasis was accorded the question of whether modern breaststroke is “flylike” (referring to the butterfly stroke) and whether “waves” travel along the body during the breaststroke cycle. Selected body landmarks and the center of mass (CM) of 8 Olympic(More)
