Hello,

I'm brand new to this board so I apologise if this is in the wrong section.
Does anyone know what the worlds fastest 50 kick with a board (dolphin kick) is? Short course meters...

What does the King of Swimming go??

Thanks in advance,

MM

You have opened up a good debate on who the king of swimming is.
It could be...the fastest...or the most versatile.

Thanks for the link.
I couldn't find 50 KICK SCM and I found out we are looking for underwater not with a board, fly kick...

Apparently, in this 50 kick race, you got a breath at the turn wall (25 m) and no other breaths before or after...

and as for the King of Swimming...
everyone knows that's Alexi Popov!!...
hahahahaha
love that guy...
(in a complete worship of his stroke and efficiency kind of love...)
or is the King Tommy Dolan??
love that guy too...
(Mr. Angst should have been his nickname)
or maybe its...

i'm not sure

I do know that years ago Shaun Jordan kicked a 50 SCY free with a board from a dive and went around 23.3

I bet the world's best could go 21 high to 22 low

I bet there are a few who could go
20 point low to 19 high for a 50 SDK (no board)

UT had a swimmer make
10 x 100 k on 1:10

Michael phelps is a very fast kicker
Gary Hall was too, heard he could go around 55 for a 100 scy kick in practice

Having found this old thread...some of these times are amazing.
The :49 by Phelps for 100yd SDK is crazy fast to say the least.


I'm with you on the Popov nomination. Incredibly relaxed and controlled freestyle. (He kicked 50 meters in :27 w/ a board.)
But in Australia... Kieren Perkins used to be known as "The King". The 1500 was and still is the Super Bowl of freestyle events for them.



SCY
100 breast kick in 1:08.1
200 breast in 2:20
avg. 1:16.1 for 2000 straight breast
kick 100 back in 51.4 SCY
19.9 for a 50 kick with fins on (no board)
55.5 for 100 free kick SCY
I heard Peter Marshall did a 2000 Back kick in something crazy like 22 minutes
LCM
100 breast 1:20.8
I read somewhere that thorpe can go 2:15 for 200 LCM free kick

I'm not sure what the fastest 200 free kick i've seen is, but 1:55 sounds pretty insane. I might call BS on that one.....
________________________________
I saw Peter Marshall kick 8x100 on 1:30 going between 51.6-56.4. I do remmeber hearing about some national swimmers being able to go sub 2:00 200 kicks with and with out kick boards.

I saw Gary Hall kick 100 meter long course (on a kickboard) Butterfly in 1:03 or maybe 1:05.
