Pic of the Week – September 30, 2005

This week’s Pic of the Week is the backstroke-to-breaststroke flip turn, as demonstrated by Kevin Clements.

This is a very difficult turn to master. Take a look at the flexibility that is needed in the initial stages of the turn. Once you get beyond this position, it doesn’t get much easier. Your body has to flip while rotating — and all while your head is under water.

We have included a short clip to help you get a good image of this turn. Now go out and have fun trying this one.
