Swimming Men's 100m Backstroke Semifinals Replay - London 2012 Olympic Games

Swimming Men's 100m Backstroke Semifinals Full Replay from the Aquatics Centre at the London 2012 Olympic Games. -- 1 August 2012

Swimming has featured on the programme of all editions of the Games since 1896. The very first Olympic events were freestyle (crawl) or breaststroke. Backstroke was added in 1904.

In the 1940s, breaststrokers discovered that they could go faster by bringing both arms forward over their heads. This practice was immediately forbidden in breaststroke, but gave birth to butterfly, whose first official appearance was at the 1956 Games in Melbourne. This style is now one of the four strokes used in competition.

Women's swimming became Olympic in 1912 at the Stockholm Games. Since then, it has been part of every edition of the Games. The men's and women's programmes are almost identical, as they contain the same number of events, with only one difference: the freestyle distance is 800 metres for women and 1,500 metres for men.

The Secret to Perfect Backstroke Technique

Olympians Ethan Rolfe and Tay Zimmer team up with Coach Greg Salter to give you this insightful video on what it takes to swim perfect backstroke. Learn how to achieve perfect body position, speed, technique, and total control over Backstroke.

How To Swim Backstroke | Technique For Back Crawl Swimming

Backstroke can be challenging to learn, it's the only stroke where you can't see where you're going and it requires good coordination and timing. With a bit of practice, however, you'll be swimming backstroke confidently in no time, and this video is a great place to start when learning the stroke!

Check out the GTN Shop:

The key to good backstroke starts with head positioning - maintaining a neutral head position looking upwards and not looking down. Following on from that, a good catch position and body rotation aid good propulsion in the water and a strong leg kick helps maintain good balance. It's hard to learn all of these things together so try picking one element and working on that till you have it mastered before moving on to the next skill.
