Hill Taylor from UT SDKed 50 meters in 23.10 (http://www.floswimming.org/videos/coverage/view_video/235153/186553) even though he decellerated from the flags in

I heard Lochte SDKed 50 M in 22.8 in 2008 at olympic training camp

Too bad they couldn't have gotten it from a little higher up... the Hill Taylor video looks much better and impressive due to that, I think.

I'm always impressed with how fast some people can dolphin kick underwater, but should we really be impressed by someone swimming slower underwater than they can on the surface? There's no point in stretching your underwaters if you aren't going faster than you would on the surface, after all.

How fast can the best flutter kickers go?

some swimmers don't have effective streamlines or SDKs. they dive in, go too deep, stay under too long, lose momentum, & sometimes practically stop. Many move faster by getting to the surface and swimming.

Each swimmer needs to figure out their break out zone & have a kick count strategy.

Some swimmers can flutter kick faster than you'd think but usually not as fast as the best streamline dolphin kickers. Some people flutter kick faster than they dolphin kick.

Eddie told me Garrett Weber Gale kicked 50 LCM fr in 27 low
Shaun Jordan kicked a 50 from a dive with a board in 23 low

My best ever 50 scy flutter kick with a board from a push was 28.0.
think I've been 31 LCM

Factors that effect times are
How did you start?
from a dive or push,
from a GO or roll

What suit did you wear?

With a board or without?

SFK streamline flutter kick


How fast can the best flutter kickers go?
