      Butterfly

      Breaststroke

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Backstroke is the swimming stroke that must start with two hands and two feet touching the wall.

The swimmer pushes off the wall with both hands and both feet to start the stroke. This allows them to generate momentum and maintain a streamlined position as they begin swimming on their back.

    • C.

      Swim behind the athlete and help push them forward

    Correct Answer

    Explanation

This means that the assistant can provide guidance and direction to the athlete, but they cannot physically help the athlete move forward in the water. The purpose of this rule is to ensure that the athlete is primarily responsible for their own movement and to maintain fairness in the competition.
