Overview

In competitive swimming, the human body becomes an engine. Arms, legs, and back muscles work to propel the swimmer through the water while excess thermal energy conducts away through her skin. She breathes rhythmically to burn the fuel stored in her body, and the resulting chemical energy is partially transformed into mechanical energy of motion. As she strokes smoothly and her arms spear into the water, the reaction force of the water on her body propels her forward. Her swim cap and skin-tight swimsuit help minimize the resistive force of the water. Water is both her ally and enemy: it buoys her up, cools her body, and pushes her forward; at the same time it opposes her every move through drag forces. Years of training leave only one summary result: grace and power in dynamic motion.
