Abstract

World records in competitive swimming have been undergoing a trend of improvement that has spanned the last two decades. The growth of age-group swimming programs and the commensurate production of researchers in swimming has helped maintain the improvement since the early 1960's. Biomechanical research in competitive swimming is quite evident in the literature; in fact researchers in this area have been meeting on the international level since the first international symposium in Brussels in 1971.
