Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How many butterfly kicks can you do after you flip at the wall in Breaststroke?

  • 2. 

    On Backstroke how many freestyle pulls can you do before you flip?

    Explanation
    In backstroke, before flipping, you can do two freestyle pulls. This means that while swimming on your back, you can perform two strokes with your arms in a freestyle motion before executing a flip turn. This allows swimmers to maintain their momentum and rhythm while transitioning from one length to the next. By doing two freestyle pulls, swimmers can generate enough power and speed to execute a successful flip turn and continue swimming in the opposite direction.

    Can you touch the wall with both hands swimming Breaststroke and Butterfly?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is possible to touch the wall with both hands while swimming Breaststroke and Butterfly. In Breaststroke, the swimmer's arms move in a simultaneous motion, pulling the body forward and allowing both hands to reach the wall. In Butterfly, the swimmer's arms move in an alternating motion, but they still have the ability to touch the wall with both hands during the stroke. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Get back on blocks
    C. Disqualified
    Explanation
    If you false start in a race, it means that you started before the official signal or before the designated starting time. In this case, the correct answer suggests that the person should get back on the starting blocks, which means they should go back to their original position and prepare for another start. However, the person will also be disqualified from the race as a consequence of the false start.

    In Backstroke you cannot touch the wall on your_________

    Correct Answer(s)
    stomach
    front
    Explanation
    In backstroke, you cannot touch the wall on your stomach or front. This is because backstroke is swum on the back, with the swimmer facing upwards. Touching the wall with the stomach or front would indicate that the swimmer has turned onto their stomach, which is against the rules of backstroke. The correct way to touch the wall in backstroke is with the back, shoulders, or any part of the body except the stomach or front.
