|Abstract: ||Swimming performance is affected by several factors including the
hydrodynamic drag. Hydrodynamic drag is the force that a swimmer has
to overcome in order to maintain his movement through water and is
highly dependent on swimming technique.
PURPOSE: To analyse in young swimmers the relationship between
hydrodynamic drag and the front crawl performance.
METHODS: 25 young swimmers (11 females and 14 males) participated
in this study. Their mean (standard deviation) age, body mass, height
and best swimming performance in 100 m front crawl was 12.08 (0.76)
years, 43.08 (7.60) kg, 1.52 (0.08) m and, 75.11 (9.57) s, respectively|
