Synopsis

Asymmetries in strength and flexibility are common among swimmers and are known to affect competitive performance. The objectives are to:

  • Identify asymmetries among elite swimmers and their relationship to swimming technique and performance.
  • Develop an intervention program to correct the asymmetries.
  • Quantify the effects of the intervention on the asymmetries and performance.

Additional Information

This is an interdisciplinary project involving a team of biomechanists, strength and conditioning experts and physiotherapists.
