ARM MOVEMENTS AFTER A BACKSTROKE TURN
AbstractWhile turning, a swimmer takes approximately one second to reverse his direction before he thrusts from the wall. However, the advantage gained from the thrust and the initial arm movements more than make up for the time it takes a swimmer to reverse his direction. This advantage explains why all short course records are faster than long course records.
