Good Racing Dives

QUESTION:

Hi Gary, I have question for you.

How much time can a good start dive save you in a race?

Thanx!! roman

ANSWER:

Hi Roman,

Getting a good start at the beginning of every race is very important.  The difference between a swimmer with a very good dive start and a weak start could be as much as 2 seconds.

It is important that swimmers practice dive starts on a regular basis so that they:

  • improve their reaction time to the starting signal,
  • generate a large forward force from their feet when diving off the block,
  • have a smooth clean entry into the water through one hole, and
  • hold a strong streamlined position underwater.
