Klappentext

Excerpt from Speed Swimming In undertaking the task of giving to the public a short treatise on swimming I recognized the wisdom of obtaining the collaboration of someone well versed in theoretical as well as practical swimming. In looking about me I soon realized that I could do no better than in applying to either Mr. L. de B. Handley, or Mr. Otto Wahle. Both had had a brilliant competitive career; both had followed closely the development of swimming at home and abroad, and though only amateurs, had coached with as much success as any professionals in the country. I was fortunate in finding them only too glad to assist me, and with their aid I put together this book, trying to condense into a few pages all that could be useful to the swimmer, aiming at clearness and brevity, and omitting all unnecessary stuff. Most of the illustrations are from photographs posed for by representative exponents of the strokes, but owing to the difficulty experienced in getting proper effects with the camera, through water, I deemed it advisable to pose them on terra firma. As a consequence, in several cases the body is so strained as to give a slightly erroneous impression, but the positions of the arms and legs are accurate both individually and in respect to each other, and the only fault lies in the fact that the legs are at times too far below the surface. The line drawn across illustrations indicates approximate water-line. In taking these position in the water, however, the body will, of itself, correct the fault, and unconsciously the right balance will be established.
