Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate sculling techniques in synchronized swimming based on three-dimensional motion analysis. Movements during sculling for ten elite synchronized swimmers were analyzed using a three-dimensional direct linear transformation method. Sculling! techniques for more advanced synchronized swimmers included holding the elbows and upper arms stationary and changing the attack angles of the hands smoothly and evenly. When swimmers were given a 1.5-kg load, scull tempo increased and range of motion of the forearms was reduced.
