Through reading previous studies, corresponding and talking with respected swimming coaches, and drawing from personal experience, the present writer identified and tested physical traits thought to influence a swimmer’s speed. Although muscular strength of the arms and good flexibility have long been accepted by most coaches as an asset to the speed swimmer, the other variable were selected on the basis of their anticipated relationship to swimming speed. The purpose of this study was to investigate, by means of objective tests, the relationship of selected physical characteristics to performance by swimmers in a forty-five yard freestyle sprint.
