Britons focus on turns and dolphin kicks


Today’s British 200 medley champion James Goddard admits accordingly to that the americans have been killing them underwater, and that they are therefore focusing hard on turns and dolphin kicks.

“We compared my backstroke to Ryan Lochte’s backstroke. The swimming speed was exactly the same. He just took 1.3 or 1.4 out of me on the turns alone. So that’s a massive wake-up call and that’s what we’ve been working on all year.”
