### 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.

### In Backstroke you cannot touch the wall on your_________

stomach

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.
