Five Techniques to Watch For at the World Championships

The 17th FINA World Championships are being held in Budapest from July 17-30 and we hope you are as excited as we are to watch some world-class swimming!

Here are five techniques to look out for during the competition, along with instructional videos on how to integrate them into your own training!

Full extension during freestyle

Turn timing on backstroke

“Escaping the Wake” on breaststroke

Breakouts on the butterfly

Ultra-fast Flip Turns

Each of these techniques are things that every level of swimmer can work on, whether you are just learning them or refining a skill you’ve been practicing for years.  While watching the World Championships this week, see if you can pick out a swimmer who might perform these actions better than another, and if it is a difference maker in the race!

As always, happy swimming!
