Abstract

Eight experienced swimmers were volunteered to this study. During three steps freestyle pike turns, selected kinematic variables of the pike turn such as; speed in, speed out, time in and time out, rotation and streamlining times were recorded. Kinematics were calculated from underwater videography. Correlations between these variables showed that there were good relations between speed-in and wall contact time (R²= 0.356), time-in and speed-in (R²= 0.815), and time-out and speedout (R²= 0.997). Contrary to our expectations, other kinematic variables did not seem to have good relations mainly because there was the inherent variation in swimmers’ turning techniques.
