This week here at Thanyapura we had another athlete and another success story! Maria Del Carmin on a 1,900m test set improved over TWO minutes from same test last week !!

“The only effective stroke changes are the ones that can be sustained for the race distance”

During this week here we met 3 times and we focused only on one thing at the time:

1 – Straight arm recovery to fix crossing the arms (and unstable body) and entering in water early (causing shorter catch)
2 – Hand entry to make sure she positions elbow high (in the water) pressing water backwards instead of “down first then back”
3 – Balance – to be more balanced in the water and take advantage of core during pull phase we work on NOT rushing the pull

Love to see athletes improving ! My passion is helping people
