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.
