Race Analysis for Start and Turn Distance
Start and turn distance for international caliber swimmers over the past 35 years was reported in a recent study (Gonjo & Olstad, 2020). The graphs below show the start distance for men’s 100 meter events (top) and the turn distance for women’s 200 meter events (bottom).

Freestyle Technique for Sprint and Distance
Many sources suggest that swimmers use a different freestyle technique for sprint and distance events. For example, a “straight-arm” underwater motion is often promoted for sprinting, and a “bent arm” is frequently suggested for distance events. However, science (both physics and research) shows us that a swimmer can optimize performance in events of all distances by using the same arm motion but with a different arm coordination, i.e., opposition for distance and superposition for sprints.
