Swimming video analysis with the triathletes

This evening we did video analysis with the triathletes with the help of a GoPro under water camera. Each athlete swam 4 lengths and we recorded them under the water, from above and from side on. (The other triathletes did a 1km time trial in between their video-ing.) At the end of the session we all viewed the footage together and pointed out the mistakes and how to correct them. A lot of the time with swimmers, they know the correct form but don’t realise that they are not actually swimming with this form! The video gives them the birds eye view of their own swimming stroke. We will redo the video analysis in 6 weeks and review the old footage to compare and see if we are improving! Watch this space!
