Total angular momentum about the body’s center of mass was calculated using a method developed by Dapena (1978). This method computes a local and remote angular momentum term for each body segment. Segmental contributions to the total body angular momentum were evaluated. 3 Results Angular momentum about the center of mass during a complete stroke cycle is represented in Figure 1. Average maximum clockwise and counterclockwise values (Table 1) were similar within the group of breaststrokers. Maximum and minimum segmental contributions to the center of mass angular momentum are presented in (Table 2).

SANDERS School of Physical Education University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand Abstract The purpose of this study was to quantitatively analyze the techniques of New Zealand’s most elite butterfly swimmers.

Differences among the subjects were most apparent in the center of mass velocity and acceleration profiles. In particular, swimmers varied in the relative magnitudes of propulsive accelerations associated with the phases of the pull and kick. There was a considerable vertical undulation of the CM for both males (approx 18 cm) and females (approx 14 cm). Keywords: Butterfly, swimming, technique. 1 Introduction Studies of Olympic Games performances have shown that elite butterfly swimmers vary considerably with respect to basic kinematic variables such as stroke length and stroke frequency [1].
