View Full Version : Age related distance per stroke

Are there any articles that discuss distance per stroke related to age. If we assume techniqe remains just because a person ages would that person have to take more strokes per length of the pool?

I have found that many elderly swimmers at our pool take fewer strokes per length largely due to the fact that they glide more than most swimmers do. Many have excellent technique but the vast majority swim at a slower pace which results in fewer strokes per length.
