I came across this interesting article today on the “perfect” swim stroke.

It made me think of two things….

First: if even the most elite sports scientists can’t agree on what is perfect, none of us should feel too bad about the flaws in our technique so long as we are all trying to improve and trying different things and different advice to see what works for us.

And second: I like the way they say at the end that the finding are probably best for “most swimmers, whether elite or recreational”.

So that’s what I’m calling myself now. A recreational swimmer!
